Radio Clyde stalwart Tiger Tim to head new Glasgow radio station
Glasgow’s newest radio station, GO, is to be fronted by broadcast legend Tiger Tim Stevens, who rose to fame as a popular Radio Clyde DJ before departing the station five years ago.
Standing for Glasgow’s Own the new station has brought Stevens on board as director whilst former Clyde 1 presenter Kevin Cameron, who was subject to an unfair dismissal ruling from Bauer Media alongside colleague Adrian Coll last year.
Stevens said: "We're bringing Glasgow radio back for the people of Glasgow. Over the last few years, corporations have taken over radio stations and taken away Glasgow’s individual identity it's time to bring it back. GO is Glasgow's own radio station."
Cameron, who will serve as programme director, added: “GO is part of GlasGOw. We understand that it's the people that make Glasgow. GO will be their soundtrack for the city. Other radio stations here have English or German owners and have dramatically reduced local content over the last few years, beaming shows from south of the border or sharing programming with other stations in Scotland. A city as vibrant as Glasgow deserves its own radio station. We will always be in Glasgow for the people of Glasgow because we truly understand that.”
GO Radio will be broadcast on DAB digital radio from late September and will also be available online and on radio apps for mobile devices.
