Heart Cambridgeshire to leave Peterborough
Global Radio’s Heart Cambridgeshire station is to leave Peterborough and move to a new broadcast centre on the outskirts of Cambridge.
It means the station, which is made up of the old Hereward FM and Q103 stations, will leave its base in Peterborough’s Queensgate shopping centre after more than 20 years.
Hereward Radio launched in Peterborough in July 1980 originally based in the back of a pub on the city’s Bridge Street, before moving to the current location on the railway station side of the shopping centre in the late 1980s.
Last year Heart Cambridge joined with Heart Peterborough to create Heart Cambridgeshire, with the Cambridge station’s programming moving out of the building on Vision Park in Histon.
A statement issued by Global Radio to the Peterborough Evening Telegraph said: “We can confirm that Heart Cambridgeshire will be moving to improved facilities in Histon, Cambridge. There will be no change to the station’s output or to its staff.”
