About Metro Radio

Listen to the internet radio of Metro Radio live, which was launched in 1974 and covers the North East England region, including Tyne and Wear, Durham, and Northumberland. Originally established as a local radio station, Metro Radio has been dedicated to providing the community with locally relevant news, international popular music, and uplifting, personable programs. The station is owned by Bauer Radio Ltd. and is a part of the Planet Radio station network. Metro Radio's schedule is a combination of locally produced and networked programming. The local programming segment delivers region-specific news, travel and traffic updates, as well as weather reports for North East England. This is complemented by enjoyable programs hosted by presenters and a selection of popular music from the past 15 years. One of the station's notable offerings is the "Steve & Karen’s Breakfast Show," which holds the distinction of being one of the UK’s longest-running morning shows, with over 20 years on air. Hosted by Steve Furnell and Karen Wight, this award-winning show airs on weekdays from 6am to 10am and has earned multiple accolades. "The Hits UK Chart," hosted by Sam Thompson, is Bauer's proprietary chart show featuring the top 40 hottest songs, and it is broadcast from 4pm to 7pm on Sundays.

Metro Radio slogan: "The Biggest Hits - The Biggest Throwbacks"

Bauer can now share all programmes, with the exception of a three-hour show on weekdays (which doesn’t have to be breakfast), in the approved areas already suggested by Ofcom.More >>
