Tune into changes in local commercial radio

There have been significant changes to local commercial radio in Bristol and the wider region.

Heart West Country now broadcasts from Bristol, Bath and Somerset, replacing three stations with one, and offering local breakfast and drivetime shows.

Mid-morning and mid afternoon programmes are broadcast nationally from London. Heart Swindon and Heart Gloucester continue to be broadcast locally at breakfast and drivetime, but with news coming from Bristol.

Bristol stations Star and Jack FM have been brought by Celador and this month Star has been allowed by regulator Ofcom to reduce their local programming hours.

Bauer Media’s Kiss FM is the latest station to take advantage of this relaxation in local radio rules, effectively making Kiss, which is broadcast from Bristol, Cardiff and London, a national radio station.
