The majority of Clyde 2's programming is broadcast among all Bauer City 2 stations, although there are separate Scottish shows at peak times, including weekday breakfast and drive time.[1] The only local programming on the station is live football commentaries on Saturday afternoons, airing under the Game On banner.

Clyde 2 produces much of the network's output, while other programming originates from Key 2 in Manchester, Metro Radio 2 in Newcastle, Forth 2 in Edinburgh, Tay 2 in Dundee and Bauer's headquarters at Golden Square, Soho.


Clyde 2 broadcasts local news bulletins hourly from 6am to 7pm on weekdays, from 9am to 1pm on Saturdays and from 9am to 12pm on Sundays. Headlines are broadcast on the half hour during weekday breakfast and drivetime shows, alongside sport and traffic bulletins.

The Clydebank newsroom also produces bespoke national Scottish bulletins at weekends with Sky News Radio bulletins carried overnight.
