There is a new name to get familiar with:

Encompass to Acquire Babcock’s Media Services

ENCOMPASS TO ACQUIRE BABCOCK’S MEDIA SERVICES

Note the statement from Encompass about their reasons for purchasing Babcock’s Media Services. It does not mention the word “radio” at all. Seems to me that radio distribution will in future be just a legacy service, kept in the same way Babcock already keeps the traditional stuff of World Radio Network after they likewise took over this company three years ago. Just consistent with the observation quoted at https://twitter.com/ChrisGreenwayUK/status/1022963699374596099

The sports stuff mentioned in the statement is this:

with the current ones of what has in the meantime developed into a TV/video NOC:

I would be surprised if Encompass keeps the former WRN HQ, because they already have a facility in London:
