BBC Radio Shropshire is the BBC's local radio station serving Shropshire.

It broadcasts on FM, DAB, digital TV and via BBC Sounds from studios on Boscobel Drive in Shrewsbury.

According to RAJAR, the station has a weekly audience of 96,000 listeners and a 11.3% share as of September 2021.[1]


The 96 MHz FM signal from The Wrekin is the strongest, and can be heard from outside the county, especially along the M5 and M6 near Birmingham, as well as into western Staffordshire, southern Cheshire and Wrexham.

The other transmitters (on Black Hill near Clun, on Hazler Hill near Church Stretton, and in Mortimer Forest near Ludlow) have a much weaker signal only heard up to about 6 miles (10 km) away.[citation needed] These three transmitters are for broadcasting to the south of the county, which has a hilly terrain that reduces the effectiveness of FM transmissions.

The Wrekin transmitter also broadcasts the commercial station Free Radio on 103.1 MHz FM, Digital One, the MXR West Midlands 12A multiplex and BBC National DAB. The transmitters also broadcast television, and Ludlow has national radio frequencies. DAB signals started on 31 January 2001 from the NOW Digital Wolverhampton, Shrewsbury and Telford 11B[permanent dead link] multiplex. This also includes BBC WM and originates from the Wrekin and Turners Hill (near Rowley Regis).

In addition, BBC Radio Shropshire also broadcasts on Freeview TV channel 721 in the BBC West Midlands region and streams online via BBC Sounds.


Local programming is produced and broadcast from the BBC's Shrewsbury studios from 6am - 10pm each day.

The station's late show, airing from 10pm-1am, originates from BBC Radio WM in Birmingham.

During the station's downtime, BBC Radio Shropshire simulcasts overnight programming from BBC Radio 5 Live and BBC Radio London.
