Heart 80s is a national digital radio station owned and operated by Global as a sister station of Heart and Heart Extra.[1] The station broadcasts from studios at Leicester Square in London.

Launched on 14 March 2017, Heart 80s is a rolling music service playing non-stop “feel good” music from the 1980s. It has its own dedicated live breakfast show, hosted by presenters daily from 6:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. on weekdays, from 8:00 a.m. to 12 midday on Saturdays, and from 9:00 a.m. to 12 midday on Sundays. At other times, the station is mostly an automated service.

The station broadcasts nationally on Digital One DAB and online alongside the existing Heart Extra service. Shortly after its launch it replaced Heart Extra on television platforms.[2]
