Real Radio (Yorkshire) is an independent local radio station that broadcasts across South and West Yorkshire. It is the third regional radio station within the Real Radio brand (the first being in South Wales). The managing director for the station is Steve South. Its main studios are based in Tingley, in the City of Leeds district of West Yorkshire.

While ostensibly aimed at all ages, it is clear from the musical policy of the station that the average age of the listener is 25+. The station plays music from the 70s to present, predominantly ballads, love songs and middle of the road rock and pop.

The station transmits from Emley Moor on 106.2 MHz FM, which covers the majority of South Yorkshire and West Yorkshire, including Leeds, York, Doncaster, Huddersfield and Rotherham. It also broadcasts from Idle on 107.6 MHz FM to Bradford and Halifax, and on 107.7 MHz FM from Tapton Hill to Sheffield.


The Current Line up is: Dixie, Gayle Lofthouse, Pete Edgerton, Sarah Graham, Daryl Denham, Guy Harris, Chris Tarrant, Yorkshire Television weather presenter Debbie Lindley, Ian Brannan, Jo Lloyd, Jamie Fletcher, & Producer Jamie Broadbent.

Former presenters include Umberto, Dave Sander, Darren Kelly, Stuart Ellis, Mark Benson, Al Kelly, Gary Davis and Martin Kelner.

Networked Programmes / Presenters

Real Radio's weekday evening and weekend news bulletins are networked from 105.4 Real Radio in the North West. Programmes shared include The Evening Show, Through the Night, High School Days and Disco Divas.

Real Radio's jingles were made by Bespoke Music until April 2009 when Music4's new packlage were aired.
