Heat Radio is a British digital radio station, broadcasting to various parts of the UK and forms part of Bauer's National portfolio of radio brands.


Heat Radio launched in 2003 as a non-stop music station broadcasting from London, where it was located alongside the sister magazine. In 2007 the station re-launched with presenters and showbiz news throughout the day.[1] Later in 2009 It moved to Bauer Radio's studios in Manchester, as part of a cost-cutting programme, to be based alongside sister radio stations Key 103 and The Hits Radio where music and entertainment news output would be sourced.[2] In January 2015, it moved back to London be based with Bauer's other national brands at One Golden Square.

Recently the station has been appearing more in heat magazine, with regular adverts, shared content and joint campaigns like a recent promotion with Channel 4's Hollyoaks,[3] and ITV2's The Only Way Is Essex.
