Hallam FM is an Independent Local Radio station based in Sheffield, England, owned and operated by Bauer as part of the Hits Radio network. It broadcasts to South Yorkshire.
The station started broadcasting on 1548 kHz/194m AM, 95.2 and 95.9 MHz FM under the name of Radio Hallam from its studios at Hartshead in Sheffield City Centre on 1 October 1974. After a take-over of the parent company YRN by the Metro Radio Group, the AM frequency became Great Yorkshire Gold
As the Metro Radio group was bought by EMAP, Hallam FM also became part of the Big City Network in Northern England. In 2011, Bauer Media’s Big City Network was replaced by the Place Portfolio, containing the group’s local radio stations.
