Viking FM is moving its broadcast teams out of Hull to co-locate with Hallam FM in Sheffield.
The station’s only remaining local show (once Drive goes networked in September), Breakfast with Alex Duffy and Ellie Brennan, will be broadcast from Sheffield starting on 2nd October.
Bauer says: “The broadcast teams will move into our Sheffield studios, ensuring that they have access to the very best technology and resource and more vibrant creative environment.”
Viking FM will continue to have local news and commercial teams in the area, with any Cash For Kids fundraising continuing to go into the local regions.
Viking FM has been based at Commercial Road in Hull since it launched in 1984, and split into Viking FM on 96.9 FM and Viking Gold on 1161 AM in 1988.
All medium wave programmes are now broadcast from the North West of England as part of the Greatest Hits Radio network.
