From Monday 19 January 2015, The Hits on DAB was absorbed into the new Bauer City 3 network of stations. The new services are locally branded and identified, with the opportunity to split for individual local news, information, advertising and jingles, with The Hits content as a national programme feed.
Programming and presenters
Programming is broadcast among all Bauer City 3 stations in Scotland and Northern England, originating from the studios of Key 3 in Castlefield and Clyde 3 in Glasgow. Some other output is broadcast from Bauer's headquarters at Golden Square, Soho.
All stations in the network carry their own local news bulletins hourly from 6am to 7pm on weekdays, from 9am to 1pm on Saturdays and from 9am to 12pm on Sundays. Headlines are broadcast on the half-hour during weekday breakfast and drivetime shows, alongside sport and traffic bulletins.
