Youthcomm Radio has joined the Hereford and Worcester DAB multiplex, using 112 kbps joint stereo. This is in addition to the 106.7 FM service for Worcester and the surrounding areas.

The station is a youth orientated community radio service, playing hit music alongside local news and info. The station first launched on FM in 2008.

Update (19/12/2020): Youthcomm Radio left the Hereford and Worcester DAB multiplex on the 14th, after only a handful of days. The reason is unknown, but it could be because the transmission was a test transmission ahead of a full launch at a later date, there is a license issue which needs to be resolved, or the station has opted not to broadcast on dab.
