About Southdown Radio

Southdown Radio is the new Digital Radio service for the city of Brighton & Hove.

We’ve been awarded a radio licence by Ofcom and can now be heard across the city on DAB+ Digital Radio, smart speakers, the Radioplayer App and online.

Southdown Radio is an innovative, super-local radio station with the city in our DNA. We’re all about Brighton & Hove and people choose to listen to us because we’re rooted in the city and we talk about the city: morning, noon and night.

Our management team has over 80 years combined radio experience with leading local and national radio brands, including: Southern Sound/FM, BBC Radio Sussex, Jazz FMLBC and Smooth Radio.

Unlike most of our competitors, we’re based in the city and our mission is to become an integral part of the local community – informing, entertaining and engaging with the people of Brighton & Hove, 24 hours a day.

Aimed at 30+ adult audience, we play an unbeatable choice of songs – from the Rock & Roll giants right up to today’s biggest hits and we broadcast exclusive news bulletins for Brighton & Hove on the half-hour, 24/7.

Day and night, our listeners can also hear local weather, travel and tide times every 30 minutes; regular business, entertainment and sports updates; news of local events and job vacancies; messages from local community groups and more.

Advertising on Southdown Radio offers a unique opportunity to target and reach people who have a personal interest in Brighton & Hove – people who live, work and spend their money here. It’s also a fantastic opportunity to encourage consumers to support businesses around our amazing city.
