Automation and Local Programming
On Wave 102, all of our programming is produced locally and presented from our studios at Buchanan Street, Dundee. There are no arrangements for networked or syndicated programming. We do occasional outside broadcasts from around our transmission area.
It is necessary at certain times to automate our programmes. This is where the presenter has pre-recorded their links but may not necessarily be in the studio at the time the programme is broadcast. Automated programming will normally happen outwith peak, daytime hours.
