The Week: Media news - GMG to bring back Jazz FM

GMG Radio is planning to bring back Jazz FM as a digital station for London and the North-West, in a bid to attract jazz fans disappointed by the closure of rival GCap's national DAB station TheJazz.

If Ofcom agrees, GMG will start to broadcast Jazz FM on DAB later this year, three years after it gave the station's 102.2 national frequency over to Smooth FM. Jazz FM has since continued online.
