Global Radio is to move Heart and Capital to a new location in Birmingham – just yards away from its current base in Broad Street.
The new studio and office complex from next spring will be the entire eighth floor at Eleven Brindleyplace on a 10 year lease – and just 2 minutes away from Heart’s home since it launched in 1994.
And Whilst Heart has been there since 1994, Capital, previously known as Buzz/Choice/Galaxy moved in when Chrysalis bought the station in 1999. The Arrow and DNN also broadcast from there in the past.
The new studio will be across the square from Orion Media – home of Free Radio, as Group Programme Director David Lloyd pointed out on Twitter this morning.

Anita Wright, regional managing director at Global Radio said: “It provides us with a workspace that’s fit for the future and keeps our stations right in the heart of the West Midlands.”
