BBC Radio Devon is the BBC Local Radio service for the English county of Devon. It began transmissions on 17 January 1983, replacing a previous breakfast show (Morning Sou'West) for Devon and Cornwall broadcast on the local frequencies of Radio 4.
Radio Devon is broadcast on the following frequencies from BBC Broadcasting House in Plymouth and St. David's Hill in Exeter (transmitter location in brackets):
- AM (MW):
- DAB - available in Plymouth, Exeter, Torbay and North Devon. Plymouth also broadcasts to South East Cornwall, meaning Radio Cornwall is unavailable on DAB. The DAB feed to Plymouth is independent of the DAB feed to Exeter and Torbay; see Note below
Note: FM, DAB and AM frequencies opt-out every Saturday and most Tuesday Nights to broadcast live sports coverage to specific areas of the county, i.e. Plymouth, Exeter and Torbay. Gordon Sparks is the lead commentator of every Plymouth Argyle league game on the 95.7MHz (Plymouth) frequency.
