Pip Spilsbury, acting director of audio and language content at SBS, said: “With the permanent installation, our audiences will now be able to enjoy the complete range of services provided by SBS radio.”
Michael Mason, director of ABC regional and local, added: “The introduction of digital radio in Hobart is an important milestone for the ABC, as it coincides with the launch of the latest addition to our digital-only channels, ABC KIDS listen.
