Bauer City 3 was a network of 12 popular mainstream music radio stations in Scotland and northern England, owned and operated by Bauer Radio.

Overview[edit]

From Monday 19 January 2015, The Hits on DAB was absorbed into the new Bauer City 3 network of stations.[1] The new services were locally branded and identified, with the opportunity to split for individual local news, information, advertising and jingles, with The Hits content as a national programme feed.

Programming was broadcast among all Bauer City 3 stations in Scotland and Northern England, originating from the studios of Key 3 in Castlefield and Clyde 3 in Glasgow. Some other output was broadcast from Bauer's London Studios at Golden Square, Soho.

From 1 September 2017, the local City 3 branding of the stations on DAB was withdrawn, in favour of reverting to using The Hits name in all areas.[2]
