Tynemux - Creating digital radio opportunities on the North East coast

Tynemux are an innovative, local broadcasting company planning to freshen up the airwaves of the North East coast.

We're working hard to build a small-scale DAB platform for Tyneside that delivers...

A breakthrough in listener choice

Radio is the theatre of the mind; let's create something worth listening to!

Tynemux are spearheading a range of new stations that focus on under-represented musical tastes, cultures and interest groups.

Affordable advertising rates for local businesses

The North East's street-level economy deserves a boost!

We're building a platform for our partner stations that will unlock affordable advertising for every shop, café, bar, restaurant, tradesperson and service provider who wish to engage with switched-on decision makers in the North East.

A digital future for community stations

The region's community stations are currently limited to broadcasting to small population areas on the FM band.

Tynemux will make DAB affordable for community stations and reserve capacity for those that are working hard to deliver real social gain in the North East.

Tynemux - a proposed DAB multiplex for North and South Tyneside

The coverage area of our proposed transmitters is North and South Tyneside, including:

  • Whitley Bay, Tynemouth, North Shields, Killingworth and the East End of Newcastle
  • South Shields, Jarrow, Hebburn and Heworth
  • Boldon, Cleadon and Whitburn

Tynemux are working closely with prospective bidders in the adjacent SS-DAB licence areas of "Newcastle & Gateshead" and "Alnwick & Morpeth" for the mutual benefit of radio in the North East.
