Heart began broadcasting in the West Midlands on 6 September 1994 as 100.7 Heart FM, becoming the UK's third Independent Regional Radio station, five days after Century Radio in North East England, and Jazz FM North West.
The first song to be played on 100.7 Heart FM was Something Got Me Started by Simply Red.
Some news content is produced from neighbouring stations.
For example, most news bulletins for the network's North Wales station are produced from Cardiff Bay.
On all Heart stations, short national news updates, read by LBC's duty newscaster, from Global's London headquarters air every hour at all other times, except during The Big Top 40.
As of 2014, the network uses jingles and themes produced by Reel World Europe, based in Salford.
On 19 March 2012, Global Radio announced it had bought the Cornwall ILR station Atlantic FM from joint owners Tindle Radio and Camel Media.Heart East Midlands was sold to Orion Media, along with the West Midlands network of local stations, due to the same competition concerns that had forced its earlier sale to Chrysalis.Between June and September 2010, Global Radio merged the majority of the 33 Heart stations to create a smaller network of 18 local and regional stations, in line with new OFCOM guidelines on local output requirements.Most of the network's output is broadcast live, although some weekend shows are voicetracked.
Local programming is produced and broadcast from the originating Heart station's studios from 4-7pm on weekdays.
For example, Heart West produces bulletins for Bristol and Somerset, Wiltshire, Gloucestershire, Devon and Cornwall.
