When launched in 1995, Alpha was owned by Radio Investments Ltd while First Radio Sales
In 2009, Alpha was joined by neighbouring station Minster Northallerton to share the sudio complex in a cost-cutting exercise. To make further savings, both Alpha and Minster Northallerton, along with Durham FM were rebranded as Star Radio North East which meant all three stations lost their heritage names and, until recently, only produced a daily breakfast show. Since June 2010, output has been networked across all frequencies, although commercial breaks are still unique to the three areas.
Most recently the station had sung radio jingles made by Bespoke Music.
