- Media in Aberdeen
Media in Aberdeen have long been published or broadcast. The city and surrounding area's main newspaper the Press and Journal has been made and printed in the city since 1748 making it Scotland's oldest newspaper.
Aberdeen is famous for the entertainers of Scotland The What.
The main newspapers of Aberdeen are the daily Press and Journal and the Evening Express, both printed six days a week by Aberdeen Journals. There is also a job and second-hand advertising paper, Scot-Ads and free papers Aberdeen Citizen and the new weekly paper City Life .
For over 45 years, Aberdeen has been home to the ITV regional franchise for northern Scotland, Grampian Television, broadcast from a converted tram depot in the Queens Cross area. Since a takeover by the Scottish Media Group (now STV Group plc) in 1997, Grampian's identity and local programming output were gradually depleted until the present situation, where Grampian is now officially known as STV North and broadcasts from smaller studios in the Tullos area of the city. The local news programme STV News at Six is still produced from Aberdeen alongside regional commercials.
Aberdeen has three local commercial radio stations — Northsound 1 on 96.9, 97.6 & 103 FM, Northsound 2 on 1035 AM, and Original 106 on 106.8 & 106.3 FM. The two Northsound stations operated as a single station, Northsound Radio, until 1995. BBC Radio Scotland broadcasts local news opt-out bulletins for Aberdeen and North East Scotland on weekdays.
Latest audience figures put Northsound 1 as the number 1 radio station in the area, a title it has become accustomed to holding.
The Station House Media Unit (based at Station House, a partially National Lottery-funded community project) runs a radio station broadcasting with a five-year community license on 99.8 MHz FM, known as SHMU FM. Prior to obtaining the FM license, the station was available on the internet.
From time to time, the Aberdeen University Students' Association has obtained a Restricted Service License (RSL) for temporary FM radio broadcasts; its station was first known as Slick FM but this is subject to change with each license. In the meantime, a permanent station provides internet broadcasts.
In addition, a multi-ethnic community organisation entitled Multi-ethnic Aberdeen Ltd. runs Multi-ethnic FM (Me FM) on an annual basis using an RSL and has said it hopes to apply for a permanent license. At other times, internet broadcasts are employed.
