Galloway to host new breakfast show on Bauer’s Greatest Hits Network

THE broadcaster, Robin Galloway, is to host a new breakfast show.

He is to begin from the first of next month on Bauer Media’s Greatest Hits Network.

Galloway currently hosts Clyde 1’s drivetime show, Clyde being part of Bauer and the Greatest Hist Network being part of the company’s AM offering, including Clyde 2.

Says Bauer, in a media release: “His new show is an integral part of Bauer Media’s plans to bring the very best programming and content to audiences across the whole of Scotland, whilst also retaining, producing and broadcasting local news, sport, traffic and travel and ‘what’s on’ information from each of the local Greatest Hits Network stations it serves: Clyde 2, Forth 2, Northsound 2, Tay AM and West Sound.”

The release continues: “Based on listener insight, the launch is a key part of Bauer Media’s strategic plans for the Greatest Hits Network, designed to create future focused brands and content in order to grow and delight audiences. The Greatest Hits Network currently reaches 368,000 people every week (RAJAR Q1 2013) via its carefully targeted and compelling entertainment, music and personality-led content, who can listen and engage via DAB, online, mobile app and AM frequencies.

“In addition to the exciting new breakfast show, the Greatest Hits Network is increasing its specialist music output, by introducing a daily themed show every weekday at 7pm; plus extending its tailored and curated weekend specialist shows to broadcast right across Scotland.”

The move prompts BBC Scotland’s Jamie McIvor to consider the trend for sister radio stations to share content.

The Bauer release further adds: “A new two-hour Scotland-wide topical talk show is also launching on Sunday mornings focusing on the issues affecting Scotland, such as the independence referendum. This stimulating show will be hosted by Ally Bally, with input from Bauer Media Scotland’s news teams as well as political editor, Colin McKay.”
