BBC Radio 1

The remit of Radio 1 is to entertain and engage a broad range of young listeners with a distinctive mix of contemporary music and speech.

Its target audience is 15-29 year olds and it should also provide some programming for younger teenagers.

It should offer a range of new music, support emerging artists - especially those from the UK - and provide a platform for live music. News, documentaries and advice campaigns should cover areas of relevance to young adults.

Current service licence

BBC Radio 1The Trust reissued this service licence in January 2017 to reflect a change agreed in December 2016 to BBC Radio 1’s service licence which enables the closure of the Newsbeat app and for Newsbeat’s website content to be integrated into BBC News online.
