A real Smooth first birthday

Smooth Radio in the North East celebrated 12 months of broadcasting on Thursday, with the station reaching 315,000 listeners every week.

The GMG Radio-owned station, which shares premises with sister stations Century Radio and Rock Radio in Team Valley, said: "Listeners across the Region are clearly enjoying Smooth Radio’s wide mix of popular music from the last five decades, coupled with a line-up that includes the talents of Sunderland native Tom Davies on Breakfast and Newcastle local, Paul Wappat on Drivetime."

Programme Director for Smooth Radio, Kevin Howard said, “Our first year has been fantastic and exceeded all expectations for a new radio station. The listeners have really taken to Smooth and like what they hear, which is reflected in the impressive listening figures.

“We’re all looking forward to the year ahead and hope to make it even bigger and better than the one just passed!”
