Dyfodol i’r Iaith has given a warm welcome to Radio Cymru’s announcement of its latest developments. As part of the channel’s forthcoming fortieth birthday celebrations, Radio Cymru will be offering a package of digital developments and a new temporary channel over the autumn season.
Dyfodol have been pressing for a wider variety of services for Welsh speakers and learners. Today’s announcement heralds a significant step towards satisfying three of Dyfodol’s Manifesto demands: to develop two Welsh-language radio stations, to fully exploit the opportunities provided by digital media, and to effectively provide for all ages and interests.
Heini Gruffudd, Dyfodol’s Chair said: “This is excellent news. We are glad to hear that Radio Cymru will be celebrating its birthday by looking to the future, through innovation and offering more choice for listeners and service users. We wish every success to these new ventures, and look forward to a variety of exciting and creative output over the coming months and years.”
