Bauer Media. Scotland’s biggest commercial radio group is to launch a major, Scotland-wide programming initiative for its evening and night-time output. Bauer Media’s Radio Division, which owns

  • Radio Clyde,
  • Radio Forth,
  • West Sound,
  • MFR,
  • Radio Borders,
  • Radio Tay and
  • Northsound,

will introduce “Scottish National Programming” across its stations from 7pm into the small hours starting on September 15.  The new programming plans include Clyde 1’s popular presenter, Romeo, who will front ‘In Demand’ – a show featuring live guests and a play list of chart-topping hits – between 7pm and 10pm, Monday to Friday. Gina McKie will be hosting ‘Late Night Gina McKie’, which will be live on air between 10pm and 1am, Sunday to Thursday, with a unique combination of contemporary, relaxing music and a lighter look at relationships, involving guests and listener interaction.

    This is a rather misleading report from allmedia. What Bauer have actually done is dropped much local programming from their various commercial stations. Instead of carrying local programming these stations now relaying output from Radio Clyde during the evening. Although the press release might claim this is about introducing “national programming” for Scotland it is in fact simply a cost cutting measure by Bauer intended to save them money! To listeners it is a reduction in their local radio services. The UK commercial radio industry is in a difficult state financially..
