Norway embarking on shutdown of FM on national broadcasts

Starting Wednesday, FM radio stations across Norway will gradually switch to digital audio broadcasting standard, known as DAB. The shutdown process that starts in northern Norway is due to be complete by 13 December. The Norwegian government has cited its landscape with deep fjords, high mountains and scattered communities for making it expensive to operate FM networks. An estimated 200 million kroner ($ 23.4 million) will be saved, according to official figures. (Washington Post)
