Heat Radio is a British digital radio station, broadcasting to various parts of the UK and forms part of the Bauer Passion portfolio.

History[edit]

Heat Radio launched in 2003 as a non-stop music station broadcasting from London, where it was located alongside the sister magazine. In 2007 the station re-launched with presenters and showbiz news throughout the day.[1] Later in 2009 It moved to Bauer Radio's studios in Manchester, as part of a cost-cutting programme, to be based alongside sister radio stations Key 103 and The Hits Radio where music and entertainment news output would be sourced.[2]

Recently the station has been appearing more in heat magazine, with regular adverts, shared content and joint campaigns like a recent promotion with Channel 4's Hollyoaks,[3] and ITV2's The Only Way Is Essex.
