Rock FM is leaving its HQ on St Paul’s Square in Preston at the end of February, with the sales team moving to a new office in the city and the Breakfast show relocating to Castle Quay in Manchester.

Rock FM is currently based at St Paul's Church (above) and the building is no longer consdiered fit for purpose by the station. About 25 staff will move to a new "modern" office in Preston, while the presenters and producer of the Breakfast Show will move to Manchester. 

Graham Bryce, Group Managing Director for the Hits Radio Brand Network, said “We are working to bring better and more vibrant working environments for our teams.

“With the current Rock FM building in Preston in need of repair, we felt the time was right to look for new modern office accommodation for our staff there, while allowing our broadcast team to benefit from a bigger and better resourced broadcast environment.

“There will be no noticeable change for Rock FM listeners. They will still have the same great line-up of presenters including Joel Ross and Janine (Gemma) at Breakfast, Mike Toolan, Sarah-Jane Crawford, Wes Butters and Gemma Atkinson, plus all their local news, traffic and travel and other local information we know they love.”
