THE Borders home of a popular radio station is set to close in favour of a move to a “world-class” facility in Edinburgh.
Radio Borders will switch from Tweedbank to the St James Quarter later this year to use the same facilities as its sister stations Forth 1 & 2.
Despite the move out of the region, the station will continue to provide local news, sport and travel, according to a spokesperson.
Victoria Easton-Riley, content director for the Hits Radio Network across Scotland, said: “We are committed to providing the best quality in radio content and having recently launched our brand-new state of the art studios in Edinburgh, our team in Galashiels have jumped at the chance to use them and be close to their colleagues in Forth 1 and 2, so making this switch full time made sense.
“There’ll be no noticeable change for listeners as we’ll continue to provide our listeners with the best local news and entertainment, life-changing competitions and of course the biggest hits and the biggest throwbacks too.”
The popular Borders breakfast show, Gregor & Lynsey At Breakfast, has been alternating its broadcasting between Tweedbank and Edinburgh.
The show will be moved to the new studios full-time from Monday, October 24.
