Radio South: DH Radio out, LN24 in
The CSA, media regulatory body of the French-speaking community, has published the results of its radio call for tenders. The aim was to renew the radio licenses of the different stations: dozens of projects have been examined. When it comes to the FM frequencies, the large networks Bel RTL, Contact, Nostalgie and NRJ will go on. Fun Radio and the future radio part of LN24 get the remaining "urban radios" licenses. DH Radio is therefore meant to be withdrawn from the FM band unless the legal actions undertaken by its publisher IPM succeed in reforming the CSA decision. Anyway DH Radio is likely to remain until LN24 is technically ready for broadcasting. Worth noting that the DAB(+) frequencies get more stations as the technical capabilities are (far) broader than the on the analogue FM world. The Mint project run by RTL does not get any license and is withdrawn by the group.
