Radio Borders regularly broadcasts local news, weather, and traffic information as well as sports coverage at weekends and a youth programme on Saturday evenings. Its music format consists of classic hits and music from the 1960s right through to the current today. The station holds some of the highest listening figures (linked to the population) amongst all UK local radio stations.
Alongside local output from its Tweedbank studios, Radio Borders also airs networked programming from sister stations Clyde 1 in Glasgow, Forth One in Edinburgh and Key 103 in Manchester.
Comprehensive news bulletins are broadcast hourly throughout the day with additional local reports at 7.30am, 8.30am and 5.30pm. Local bulletins are produced in conjunction with Radio Forth's news team in Edinburgh and the Scottish News Hub at Radio Clyde in Glasgow.
