Paris - Feb 6, 2012 - One guest speaker at Le Radio Monday was Rachid Arhab, a CSA advisor, specializing in digital radio. He announced that Eric Besson, the Minister for the digital economy had agreed in principle to an addition of the DAB + in France. Frederic Mitterrand, the minister of culture and communication has still not responded on the issue. Even so, Arhab contends that digital radio will launch across France by the end of 2012.

The head of the RTBF, the Belgian Public Radio service also said there are large groups requesting the launch of digital radio throughout that country as well; these groups believe that radio (as we know it) won't survive unless the switch to digital is made.
