Heart introduces DAB radio show with music in the 2000s
Change in 1st National DAB Private Radio Max. As of Friday, Hart 00s is another new station specializing in music for a decade. Heart 00s joins its sister programs Heart UK, Heart 70s, Heart 80s, Heart 90s and Heart Dance in Max. Capitol Extra Reload is being replaced by a new one at Multiplex. Both stations belong to the Global Radio family of stations (Capitol FM, Hart, Smooth Radio, Classic FM, Radio X, LBC).
Capital Extra Reloaded gets an alternative DAB slot in Greater London. Smooth Chill destroys the ability to broadcast there. However, the Chil format only completes a parallel broadcast and retains its slot on the 1st National DAB Private Radio Max. Since the new Morning Show host of the Heart 00s was on Capital Extra Reloaded mission earlier in the morning, Capital Extra Reloaded tuned listeners on their DAB radio will hear a familiar voice on Monday, even if the show changes. In addition to the morning show, Saturday evening Hart 00s will also have a moderate broadcast.
At current circuit limit measurements, the Heart 90s, which belong to the Heart Transmitter family, performed well and were able to record 45.5% growth in the last quarter. Heart 00s must now build this success.
