About Metro Radio

Listen to the internet radio of Metro Radio live, which launched in 1974 with broadcasting area of North East England - Tyne and Wear, Durham, Northumberland, and as a local radio station with the commitment of supplying the people with locally relevant news, international popular music, and good-mooded, human-faced programmes. Metro Radio was merged with TFM in 2013, and since then they share their programming and the serving of the people of North East England. The station is in the ownership of Bauer Radio Ltd., member of the Planet Radio station fleet, and part of Bauer’s Hits Radio Network.
The schedule of Metro Radio built from local and networked programming. The local programming brings locally relevant news, travel-traffic information, and weather reports about North East England, alongside with good-mooded programmes with presenters, and popular music from the last 15 years.
The broadcaster is the source of “Steve & Karen’s Breakfast Show” which is one of the UK’s longest operating morning show as working for more than 17 years. The multiple award winner show is presented by Steve Furnell and Karen Wight on weekdays from 6am to 10am.
The networked programming aired from the Hits Radio Network headquarters in Manchester, and broadcasts among others "The UK Chart Show" on Sundays from 4pm to 7pm, which is Bauer's own chart show led by Sarah-Jane Crawford, with the hottest 30 songs.
