BBC East Midlands also produces regional news & local radio pages for BBC Red Button and the 'BBC Local News' websites for each county.This became Nottingham Trent University's Centre for Broadcasting & Journalism, with the TV studios left intact, which opened in September 1999. NTU moved its broadcasting centre in 2009 to its Chaucer Building on Goldsmith Street.The Nottingham headquarters were built especially after the region was created and were state of the art when constructed in 1999, containing the newsroom for East Midlands Today, a small studio for use by regional news, and accommodation for BBC Radio Nottingham. In addition to the main headquarters, the region has offices in St.Although the East Midlands and West Midlands are similar in size, the Birmingham programme covers a larger area than the Nottingham programme because its region has three main transmitters, and the Nottingham programme has one, of which the eastern half of Waltham's TSA is outside the BBC East Midlands area.Waltham is on the eastern edge of Leicestershire, and is also the main transmitter for south Lincolnshire. Much of Cambridgeshire and Bedfordshire is also covered by Waltham.
