Public File

The Breeze is part of the Greatest Hits Radio Network, and like each local commercial station in the UK has obligations with regard to its programmes, including its music and local content. These obligations are set out in the station Format which forms part of our Public File.

The Public File is just one indicator of our output. Just ask us if you’d like a hard copy. If you have any comments on it, let us know or, if necessary, contact our regulator, Ofcom.

Except in special or exceptional circumstances (which may include some bank holiday periods,) the station broadcasts news bulletins hourly from 0600 until 1900, with additional headlines in weekday breakfast and evening drive periods. Bulletins contain a mix of local/regional, national and world stories, along with sport, weather and entertainment news.

At the weekend, bulletins containing local/regional, national and world news, along with sport, weather and entertainment news, are broadcast between 0700 and 1300.

Additionally, at other times, bulletins containing national and world news, prepared by Sky, may be broadcast in some hours.

How to complain

Live, entertaining radio always carries some risk. We try to get things right, and not all programmes will be to everyone’s taste.
