Bauer to pull radio stations off Sky
By James Welsh
Radio stations including Smash Hits and Q are to be pulled from Sky's electronic programme guide, it has emerged.
Bauer Radio plans to remove Heat Radio, Kerrang, The Hits, Smash Hits and Q "in late May". Out of the broadcaster's brand portfolio, only Kiss and Magic will continue to be carried in the Sky EPG.
"We are... always reviewing the most effective distribution for our radio channels especially as we continue our significant investment in DAB and our support for significant intervention to drive this platform's rapid development," the company said in a statement.
