Norway Ends National FM Broadcasting

Norway has stopped transmitting national radio networks on the FM broadcast band

The three state controlled stations NRK P1-P3 and commercial stations P4 and Radio Norge have ceased broadcasting in the FM band and transmit DAB+ instead. Local stations are still broadcasting on FM.

Only 49% of motorists are able to listen to DAB/DAB+ in their cars, according to DRN figures.

A study cited by local media suggests the number of Norwegians who listen to the radio on a daily basis has dropped by 10% in a year, and the state controlled broadcaster NRK has lost 21% of its audience.
