BBC Radio Cornwall is the BBC Local Radio service for Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly in the United Kingdom. It broadcasts from its studios on Phoenix Wharf in Truro on 95.2 in the east, 96.0 on the Isles of Scilly and 103.9 in the west MHz FM, as well as on DAB. It was also on 630 kHz and 657 kHz AM until 2 March 2020, when those transmitters were closed for cost savings.[1]

Prior to its launch on 17 January 1983, BBC regional radio broadcasting for Cornwall amounted to the breakfast show Morning Sou'West on the AM frequencies of Radio 4 in Devon and Cornwall. Initially, Radio Cornwall shared an afternoon programme with BBC Radio Devon, but now sustains a full daytime service. The station also broadcasts a short weekly news bulletin in the Cornish language. As well as broadcasting on FM, BBC Radio Cornwall may also be streamed online via the station's website.

According to RAJAR, the station has a weekly audience of 114,000 listeners and a 12.5% share as of December 2018.[2]

Cornish language

Radio Cornwall is one of two radio stations to have broadcast programmes in the Cornish language. A five-minute news show, An Nowodhow, used to be broadcast every Sunday.[3][4]

When Radio Cornwall was first set up Cornish language content was limited to around 2 minutes per week. In 1987, a new weekly 15-minute-long bilingual show, Kroeder Kroghan, detailing Celtic cultural events taking place in Cornwall, was introduced.[5]


Most of BBC Radio Cornwall's programming is produced and broadcast from its Truro studios.

During off-peak hours, BBC Radio Cornwall also carries regional programming for the South West and West regions, produced from sister stations BBC Radio Devon and BBC Radio Somerset. During the station's downtime, BBC Radio Cornwall simulcasts BBC Radio 5 Live overnight.
