Like every local commercial radio station in the UK Radio X has requirements in respect of its music, news and local content. These requirements are set out in the station format issued by Ofcom, the UK’s radio regulator. 

The Radio X Public File contains details of the elements that Ofcom regulate and is intended to give you a better understanding of Radio X's output and what we are doing for the local community.
