Heat Radio is a popular British digital radio station that is part of the Kiss Network, owned and operated by Bauer. Launched in 2003 as a non-stop music station broadcasting from London, it has grown over the years to reach a weekly audience of 462,000 listeners as of March 2023. The station broadcasts online and on Digital Radio in Scotland, providing an accessible platform for audiences to tune in and enjoy their favorite pop music live.
The station has seen various changes in its operation, including a move to Bauer Radio's studios in Manchester in 2009, and a return to London in 2015, where it now operates with Bauer's other national brands. In 2016, along with Kisstory, Heat Radio migrated from being provided on local-layer DAB multiplexes to being transmitted over the Sound Digital national multiplex.
In its early years, Heat Radio generally broadcasted at 64 kbit/s in mono on DAB. Following its relaunch in 2007, the service was boosted to 112 kbit/s in stereo, and later switched back to mono at 80 kbit/s. In 2019, Heat Radio became an online-only non-stop music station, but it returned to be broadcast via DAB via local radio in Inverness in 2020.
