Arrow Classic Rock and Arrow Jazz FM are to be relaunched, but only on cable and Internet. Ad Ossendrijver, the boss of the bankrupt companies Crosspoints BV and Rokit BV, has bought the rights to the names of the two stations through his new company Mediad BV. Arrow’s third station, Caz!, will continue on Internet only. Mr Ossendrijver says he has two new shareholders, whose identities he has so far not revealed. Two large cable providers in the Netherlands, Ziggo and UPC, are said to be in discussions over the continued delivery of the Arrow stations, though Mr Ossendrjver says that he has reached agreement with other operators.
Nothing has so far been announced about what will happen to the mediumwave frequency, 828 kHz, recently used by Arrow Classic Rock.
