Dyfodol i’r Iaith has warmly welcomed Radio Cymru’s announcement of the intention to establish an alternative Welsh channel to be broadcast between 7 and 10 each morning. This latest development answers Dyfodol’s call to extend the BBC’s provision of Welsh-language radio programmes. The organisation believes that this will set a firm foundation for consolidating the audience for the current provision of Welsh-language brodcasting, while also attracting a new audience, particularly younger listeners.
Heini Gruffudd, Dyfodol’s Chair said:
“This is excellent news for Welsh language brodcasting, and a development Dyfodol has long campaigned for.
We wish every success to the new venture, and look forward to a creative variety of new programmes, which, along with the channel’s current output, will appeal to the widest diversity of Welsh speakers and learners.”
