The team at Bauer Media are really excited about running the two biggest rock radio stations in the UK – Planet Rock and Kerrang! Radio - and is committed to giving our listeners the best choice of new and classic rock, metal, punk and alternative. We hope you enjoy listening!

When will these changes happen and how?
Planet Rock will be introduced to the West Midlands on FM 105.2 on June 14th 2013. It will be broadcast from London, alongside the new broadcast facilities for Kerrang! Radio.

Why are changes being made to Kerrang! Radio?
It’s tough for a niche radio station to be commercially viable in a specific area, such as the West Midlands. Local advertisers tend to demand broader based commercial services targeting a wider audience. It simply wasn’t sustainable to retain a local rock and metal station like Kerrang! 105.2, hence our relocation to the existing Planet Rock broadcasting base in London.

How can I listen to Kerrang! Radio?
You can hear Kerrang! Radio on Freeview Channel 717, online at, via our smartphone app and on DAB Radio in some parts of the UK. To check DAB coverage in your area, go to
