From next season, BBC Radio Leeds commentary for the Bantams’ home and away fixtures will no longer be available across medium wave. 

Supporters will still, however, be able to tune in to the station via DAB services, on top of through BBC Sounds. 

Changes have been made as part of a long-term plan for BBC Radio Leeds to update technology and provide better value for money, after a study found the overwhelming majority of audiences do not consume through medium wave. 

To continue ensuring commentary for the Bantams, Leeds United and Huddersfield Town can be provided, BBC Radio Leeds will - from this weekend - be putting the following in place: 

- City matches will be available on medium wave until the end of the 2021/22 season

- DAB frequencies to be split so all City games will be carried live on Bradford DAB service - which can be carried across the district

- When only the Bantams are playing, commentary will be carried across all frequencies

- When Leeds United clash with Bradford City, Leeds will retain FM coverage and City coverage will continue as above. 

BBC Radio Leeds managing editor, Sanjiv Buttoo, said: “The DAB distribution maps show the Bradford DAB frequency covers the whole of the district.  

“These changes aim to ensure listeners will receive considerably better coverage of all games, from this point forward.”
