The station first aired on 15 March 1982, when it was opened by George Howard, the then chairman of the BBC. The first voice to be hear was that of Peter Gore who was one of the four-person start up team headed by Mike Warr. It launched from Broadcasting House, just off Rouge Bouillon in St Helier, and moved to its present premises in Parade Road in March 1994.

Roger Bara, a long-standing breakfast show presenter, retired in 2012.[4]

As well as broadcasting on FM and AM, BBC Radio Jersey is also available via internet at BBC Radio Jersey Online.

The majority of the station's programming is produced and broadcast from St Helier. During off-peak hours, BBC Radio Jersey also carries regional programming for the South West and West regions, produced from sister stations BBC Radio Devon and BBC Radio Bristol.
