Radio Borders is a radio station broadcasting to the Scottish Borders and North Northumberland from studios in Tweedbank, just outside Galashiels. The station is owned & operated by Bauer Radio and forms part of Bauer's Place Network of local FM stations.
Radio Borders regularly broadcasts local news, weather, and traffic information as well as sports coverage at weekends and a youth programme on Sunday lunchtime. Its music format consists mostly of music from the charts of today with the occasional older song from as far back as the 1980s. The station holds some of the highest listening figures (linked to the population) amongst all UK local radio stations.
