Local Programming and Automation

All programmes on Wessex FM are produced from within the coverage area, from studios located in Dorchester. Scott's Radio Site views this station as a high quality example of a local commercial radio station, although is concerned that local output will be lost when owners Bauer Media take full control of the station.


Station acquired by Bauer Media in 2019, along with the rest of the UKRD group. The station has an uncertain future, and is expected to loose local programmes under its new owner Bauer Media. Although plans have yet to be confirmed, it is anticipated by some that the station will be merged into the 'Hits Radio' Network. Currently in hold separate arrangements until the Competition and Markets Authority concludes its investigation into the purchase..
