30892408261_ff6cd5b668_oAt this year’s WorldDAB General Assembly in Vienna, the Per Erik Selemark Award for Outstanding Service was presented to Reiner Müller of the Bavarian media regulatory body, Bayerische Landeszentrale fur neue Medien (BLM), in recognition of his contribution to the successful deployment of DAB+ in Bavaria and Germany.

Reiner has been involved in regulating the radio industry for over 20 years and joined the WorldDAB Steering Board in 1999. He has played a key role in the development of digital radio – first in Bavaria and then in the whole of Germany.

“Reiner has made an incredible contribution to the world of digital radio and it’s been a real pleasure working with him over so many years,” said WorldDAB President Patrick Hannon. “His contagious enthusiasm, his problem solving skills and determination have been essential elements in making digital radio a success across Germany and Europe. I can’t think of a more deserving recipient of this award.”

Reiner Müller joined BLM in 1985, first working in cable and satellite before moving to digital radio in 1993 when he was elected to the board of the German DAB platform. In 1994 Bayerische Medien Technik GmbH was set up as a pilot company, where he was joined by Hans-Joachim Götz and Helwin Lesch. In 1998 Bayern Digital Radio was launched and today DAB+ in Germany continues to go from strength to strength.
