Bauer joins up weekend schedule on FM

Bauer Media stations across the North of England have started networking all but four hours of weekend daytime this week.

The move ties in with the start of Paddy’s Sunday Dinner programme across the group, and according to Bauer, marks “a fresh new era for the Place Portfolio”.

It’s the first time stations such as Hallam FM and Key 103 are broadcasting networked breakfast shows, with Stu and Kelly from Metro/TFM extending their Saturday morning show (albeit at a new time of 6-9am) to the rest of the North.

Saturday mid-mornings are now networked from Scotland to England – with Clyde’s Boogie and Dingo on-air 9am till 12pm before Key 103 presenter Darren Proctor hosts the Hot 20. 2pm till 6pm is local programmes as required by Ofcom, then it’s back to the network for Graeme Park till 10pm and Old Skool and Anthems with Dave Kelly.

Dave Kelly has replaced the popular Alan Robson Night Owls talk show on Metro/TFM – something which the local paper has reported on, saying how hundreds of fans have petitioned to keep Alan on the air.

Saturday and Sunday 1/2am till 6am is provided on a local or regional basis as a slot for upcoming talent, then on Sunday breakfast, Alex James from Key 103 is networked from 6am till 9am.

Paddy airs from 9am with Sunday Dinner, followed by a local show 12-4pm and the Vodafone Big Top 40 at 4. Networking continues after 7pm with Sunday’s edition of In:Demand which is now on-air Sunday to Thursday. Kate Lawler’s networked Late Show also shifts to Sunday to Thursday.

Former Capital presenter James Barr now hosts Friday night 7pm till 10pm with Floorfillers in both England and Scotland.
