TFM is a popular British radio station that broadcasts the biggest hits and throwbacks, offering a diverse range of programs that cater to a large audience base. Part of the Hits Radio network, TFM broadcasts to Teesside and surrounding areas of County Durham and North Yorkshire​​.

Established on 24 June 1975, TFM began its journey as Radio Tees, becoming the first local radio station in the area to broadcast on FM​​. Over the years, the station underwent several name changes and rebranding, with its current name, TFM, being adopted in 1988​​. The radio station moved to purpose-built studios in Thornaby-on-Tees in 1992, before becoming a part of Bauer Media, a German-based family business, in 2008​​.

TFM offers a rich lineup of shows and presenters, with popular offerings like "The 10am Throwback" and shows by Tom Green and Hattie Pearson​​.
