Programming and presenters

Local programming - consisting of at least 12 hours on weekdays and 4 hours on Saturdays and Sundays - is mainly produced and broadcast live from the originating station's studios. The main exception is TFM, which shares all programming with Newcastle-based Metro Radio.

The majority of networked programming is broadcast from Bauer's main hubs at Key 103 in Castlefield, Manchester and Clyde 1 in Clydebank, Glasgow. Networked output also originates from Metro Radio in Newcastle and Forth 1 in Edinburgh. Apart from some weekend output, separate networked shows are produced for Scotland and northern England.

Networked presenters

On 28 July 2015, Bauer announced it would reintroduce further separate programming for Scotland and Northern England, including split editions of Old Skool and Anthems and the weekday evening and Sunday morning shows. The changes were introduced during August 2015.[1]

Local opt-outs

MFR opts out of the networked schedule to carry additional local programming, including a weekday evening show and a weekly bilingual music programme on Saturday evenings (simulcast with several community radio stations). Clyde 1 also opts out of Old Skool and Anthems on Saturday evenings to air The GBXperience. Metro Radio and TFM opt out of the networked late show from Sunday to Thursday nights to air the long-running talk show, Nightowls.

Clyde 1 provides live football commentaries throughout the season, alongside a nightly edition of its sports show, Superscoreboard, on weekday evenings from 6-8pm. Sports coverage on all other stations is provided within local news bulletins with additional programming on Radio City, Northsound 1 and Radio Borders, which provides in-depth rugby union coverage.

On Friday and Saturday overnights in England, three regional shows air for the North West, Yorkshire and the North East & Cumbria.


All stations in the network carry their own local news bulletins hourly from 6am to 7pm on weekdays (except 2pm), from 9am to 1pm on Saturdays and from 9am to 12pm on Sundays. Headlines are broadcast on the half hour during weekday breakfast and drivetime shows, alongside sport and traffic bulletins.

National bulletins are broadcast at other times, including hourly updates from Sky News Radio in the evenings & overnight and bespoke networked bulletins for Scotland and northern England, produced in-house, at weekends.
