Radio Clyde is a division of Bauer Radio based in Glasgow, Scotland. They currently operate an FM station (known as Clyde 1) and an AM station (known as Clyde 2) from studios in Clydebank West Dunbartonshire.
The first broadcast on Radio Clyde began at 10.30 p.m. on 31 December 1973 on the 261m MW and 95.1 FM frequencies. The studios were originally located within the Anderston Centre complex within Glasgow city centre, but moved to its current site in Clydebank in 1983. The station jingle was "Radio Clyde, 261, all together now".
Programme output was split in two on 3 January 1990, with the creation of Clyde 1 and Clyde 2 after a government mandated a change in permissions for frequency sharing. Previously, AM and FM transmissions were of the same programme output. The split, effectively allowing two channels of disparate programming (and advertising) helped maintain profitability.
Scottish Radio Holdings controlled the company until 2005.
Past presenters have included Jeff Cooper, Paul Coia, Ken Sykora, Steve Jones, Richard Park, Tiger Tim Stevens, Mark Goodier, Billy Sloan and Dougie Donnelly. BBC Breakfast anchor Bill Turnbull also began his career in journalism at the station.
Dave Marshall presented breakfast for many years on the station.
Radio Clyde has 9 journalists that cover both News and Sport. Bulletins are broadcast regularly throughout the day and the head of news is currently Lorraine Herbison.
The station also has a major output of sport. Sports bulletins are broadcast throughout the day as well as a weekday and SPL matchday football phone in.
