Hilversum, Netherlands - Jun 10, 2013 - Dutch public broadcaster NPO will fund expansion of its DAB+ network by cutting funding for two medium wave stations and taking them dark, according to Radio.NL.

The original plan was to take Radio 5 off of the air in 2017, but the discontinuation of service has been moved up to 2015. Radio 5 broadcasts a nostalgia format on 747kHz in Flevoland, and 1251kHz in Hulsberg.
