Mark Radcliffe and Stuart Maconie are to host their first live show from the new BBC North headquarters in Salford this afternoon.
Along with the rest of 6 Music’s Manchester-produced output, they’ve made the move from the former BBC Manchester studios at Oxford Road.
Other shows moving include those presented by Marc Riley and Craig Charles, as well as the production team for Guy Garvey’s Finest Hour which is hosted by the Elbow singer from his home or wherever he is in the country while on tour.
While BBC Radio Manchester and 5 Live are in Media City’s Quay House building, network staff from 6 Music as well as teams from Radio 4 programmes including You and Yours, Woman’s Hour and Front Row will be based in Dock House which is just across the Salford facility’s public square.
You can watch Radcliffe and Maconie talking about their move to MediaCityUK and out of the ‘shedhole’ in Oxford Road in our exclusive video from the Radio Festival earlier this month:
