Yorkshire Coast Radio

Local pop music radio station for the Yorkshire Coast. Strong commitments to local news, events, sports, and other information. All output is produced from within the coverage area, from studios in Scarborough.

Despite strong listening figures, 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.
