Alexa, play News Radio UK

The UK's all-speech radio service is live with non-stop news and information updated throughout the day. After 8pm we bring you all the information you may have missed on the coronavirus COVID-19 outbreak, rolling until midnight.

We are now broadcasting on DAB Digital Radio in Glasgow and Portsmouth - if you live, work or visit these areas, you might need to perform a retune on your radio set before you can see us. We'll be adding more places soon.

We're the first radio station to offer a national rolling news format, bringing you today's headlines in 10 minutes, every 10 minutes. But we are still very much an experiment, taking the time to work on this unique format in the UK before making it more widely available.

We're available on all the usual devices via apps, including Kindle, iPhone and Android smartphones and tablets, plus Apple TV. You can listen right here on our website, or via the TuneIn service.
