The majority of West Sound's programming is taken from the Bauer City 2 network, although there are separate Scottish shows at peak times, including weekday breakfast and drive time.[1] The only local programming on the station is live football commentaries on Saturday afternoons, airing under the Game On banner.

Networked programming originates from Clyde 2 in Clydebank, Key 2 in Manchester, Forth 2 in Edinburgh, Metro Radio 2 in Newcastle, Tay 2 in Dundee and Bauer's headquarters at Golden Square, Soho.


West Sound broadcasts local news bulletins hourly from 6am to 7pm on weekdays, 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 from Sky News Radio are carried overnight with bespoke networked Scottish bulletins at weekends, produced from Radio Clyde's newsroom in Clydebank.
