The Story of Radio Tyneside

Radio Tyneside started broadcasting on 6th October 1951 and celebrated 65 years, the Diamond Anniversary, in 2017.

Back in early 1950, six Newcastle United fans were sitting in a pub when they came up with an idea of broadcasting match commentaries to the Royal Victoria Infirmary, in Newcastle upon Tyne, which was conveniently situated around the corner from Newcastle's home ground, St James' Park. An approach to the club resulted in a "yes" and the first match, when Newcastle beat Wolverhampton Wanderers 2-1, was broadcast live on Saturday 6th October 1951.


Now we are broadcasting on 93.6FM to the communities of Newcastle upon Tyne and Gateshead. You can hear us online anywhere and we continue to provide music, information and entertainment to our local hospitals on Hospedia Channel 1.
