History[edit]

Main article: Radio Clyde

A new programming schedule was introduced on Monday 15 June 2009, consisting mostly of programming simulcast with Bauer's other AM stations in Scotland - Forth 2 from Edinburgh, Northsound 2 from Aberdeen, Tay AM from Dundee and West Sound AM from Ayr.[1]

On 3 June 2013, station owners Bauer Radio announced Clyde 2 would axe its remaining local programming with the weekday breakfast show, then presented by Mike Riddoch, replaced with a networked show hosted by Robin Galloway from Monday 1 July 2013 across Bauer's network of AM stations in Scotland.[2] Local news (shared with Clyde 1) & traffic bulletins are retained, alongside live football commentaries on Saturday afternoons. The majority of the network's programming is produced from Clyde 2's Clydebank studios.
