AM stations are going dark voluntarily. Not being forced to shut down.
What you posted is FM analog shutting down but broadcasters still transmitting in FM HD, called DAB a much better standard than HD Ubiquity here in the US. The articles are not being fully transparent. Makes it seem the FM broadcasters are gone totally. Also, with the FM analog gone, the HD signals can raise power expanding coverage. This is an engineering fact.
In smaller countries this can be easily done, as these countries have a population of large American cities. Norway is 5 mil, equivalent to LA. Switzerland 8 mil to NYC.
