About Us

Heart, the UK's biggest commercial radio brand.

Since being launched in the West Midlands in 1994, Heart has become the UK’s biggest commercial radio station in the UK, reaching 10.3 million* people every week.

Heart likes to Turn Up The Feel Good, with artists like Ed Sheeran, Anne-Marie, Pink, and Sam Smith providing the soundtrack to your day.

Millions of people start their day with Jamie Theakston and Amanda Holden in the morning - which is jam-packed full of incredible tunes, huge competitions, and a-list guests. 

We offer listeners the chance to win some of the biggest prizes in UK radio. We frequently give away huge cash prizes, and have made two people millionaires with our annual Make Me A Millionaire game. 

The Heart schedule is crammed full of great presenters such as Pandora, Matt Wilkinson, JK & Kelly Brook, Dev Griffin, Mark Wright, Katrina Ridley, James Stewart and Emma Bunton. We also provide the soundtrack to your weekend with Heart’s Club Classics with Toby Anstis (Fridays 7-11pm) and Pandora (Saturdays 7-11pm).
