BBC wants to keep FM radio for longer

The BBC says it wants to keep FM radio for the foreseeable future rather than switch over entirely to digital.

BBC director of radio and music Bob Shennan said that "audiences want choice".

"We need to do more in the UK before we consider a switchover and for that to be genuinely led by the audience," he told a conference in Vienna.

"We are fully committed to digital and we believe we should review the landscape again in a few years' time."
