WRN, one of the leading satellite transmission companies for the UK radio industry, is hosting Virgin Radio Classic Rock on its ‘RADIO’ channel, Sky Digital 934 from Sunday 1st May, 2005. WRN is receiving the Virgin Radio Classic Rock feed at its central London broadcast centre and inserting it into its ‘RADIO’ channel. WRN is also undertaking the EPG submissions to Sky Digital that Virgin Radio is producing for its classic rock station.
The ‘RADIO’ Channel is one of several unique and innovative service offerings developed by WRN for radio stations seeking access to Sky Digital. Richard Jacobs, WRNÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Business Development Manager, said: “We developed the ‘On Air’ service a year ago as a home for broadcasters seeking temporary positions on the Sky platform - either because they are waiting for their own channel number, trialing a station or operating over a temporary period of time. Twelve months on, we now operate two such channels - ‘RADIO’ on 934 and “On Air” on 938 and I am really delighted that through the ‘RADIO’ channel we’re hosting Virgin Radio Classic Rock.”
