West FM to move output from Ayr to Glasgow
West FM’s local programmes are moving from Ayr to Glasgow to share studio space with Radio Clyde.
The local radio station will also take the new networked mid-morning show from Clyde 1 with Greigsy from 10am till 2pm, meaning only breakfast and afternoons will remain exclusive to West FM.
Its local sales team, news operation and Cash for Kids work will however remain in Ayr.
Bauer says: “The Radio Clyde studios in Glasgow have seen significant investment, and are equipped with the latest technology and studios. As a result of this change the team at West FM will also be able to take advantage of these facilities.”
Ofcom permission was not needed for the move as both stations are in the same ‘pre-approved area’ for Glasgow & SW Scotland.
West FM broadcasts on 96.7, 97.5, 106.7 FM and on DAB Digital Radio and launched in 1997 after a split from its sister station, West Sound.
