Bauer Media radio stations Metro Radio and TFM have today announced plans for a relocation to the Grade II listed Gainsborough House on Grey Street in Newcastle. 

The offices will also host commercial teams from both stations, with plans to include two new broadcast studios and a flexible office space. 

Metro Radio Station Director, Dom Munnelly, said: “We’re so pleased to be moving the station to one of the most iconic streets in the UK. We pride ourselves on reflecting North East life in our output, so to be based in the heart of Newcastle city centre on such a vibrant street is a huge positive for us.” 

Steve Furnell who presents the weekday breakfast show, along with Karen Oxley, will work from the new building. 

Furnell said: “It’s great that we’re just moving across the road from where we’ve been for several years. Having already viewed the new space, I feel it’s the perfect blank canvas for us to create an exciting new home for the station.”
