TeamRock Radio begins test transmissions
TeamRock – the new owner of Classic Rock and Metal Hammer magazines – is gearing up for the launch of a national digital radio station.
The station will broadcast on the national digital audio broadcasting (DAB) platform Digital One and will not carry any spot advertising.
The music kicks off from 4pm today on National DAB digital radio, as well as streaming through Radio Player.
TeamRock Radio’s daytime output will concentrate on classic, current and new rock music. Evenings and weekends will be devoted to a range of specialist programmes including the Classic Rock Show (presented by Nicky Horne), the Metal Hammer Show and also shows for Prog, Blues and AOR.
Head of TeamRock Radio Hugh Evans (also known by the on-air name of Moose) said: “TeamRock Radio is not just another rock station, we will play the greatest rock music from established to new, current to breaking, and weave it together with a true passion for rock music. Quite simply, you will hear more of the great rock music in the world on TeamRock.
“We hope rock fans will like it. We also have more presenters to announce in the next couple of weeks.”
Make sure you’ve got your DAB digital radio tuned into @TeamRockRadio from 4pm – when we launch a commercial-free national rock and metal station!
