The BBC's Director of Distribution has announced plans to add 162 new digital radio transmitters to improve national DAB coverage for its national network stations to more than 97%.

Transmitters will be added at a rate of more than three every two weeks between now and Christmas 2015. The fourth-phase of the roll-out will bring network BBC radio on DAB to an extra 2.5 million people and improve coverage for millions of others.

Dr Alix Pryde, Director of BBC Distribution, made the announcement at Techcon at the start of the 2013 Radio Festival in Salford. She said: "We're not just building transmitters to bring new towns and villages into coverage; we're also building ones to reinforce coverage in key areas. Glasgow, Liverpool, Oxford, Leicester, Coventry, and Eastbourne are all examples of places which will get improved coverage for many, as well as coverage for the first time for a few. When we've finished, around 49 in 50 people in the UK will be covered by our digital radio network."
