As the capital of Wales, media in Cardiff plays a large role in the city and nationwide. Employment in the sector has grown significantly in recent years, and currently provides employment for 2.1% of the city’s workforce – higher than the level across Wales (1.1%) and marginally lower than that across Great Britain as a whole (2.2%).
Cardiff‘s daily tabloid newspaper is the South Wales Echo. All of Wales’ national broadcasters are based in Cardiff. BBC Wales has its headquarters in Broadcasting House Cardiff, Llandaff, ITV Cymru Wales has its studios in Culverhouse Cross and S4C has its headquarters in Llanishen.
The national radio broadcaster, BBC Cymru Wales, broadcasts BBC Radio Wales (103.9 MHz) and Radio Cymru (96.8 MHz) on various frequencies across Wales from Broadcasting House Cardiff. Real Radio (105.4 MHz), broadcasts across Wales from Morganstown in north-west Cardiff.
