BBC Radio Guernsey has grown from a small limited hours radio operation in the early 1980s into a full tri-media broadcaster, providing locally produced radio, online and TV services. Each week the station broadcasts 74 hours of local programmes ranging from news and current affairs to music and conversation. As well as broadcasting on FM and AM, BBC Radio Guernsey is also available via internet at BBC Radio Guernsey Online.

Like other BBC enterprises in Guernsey, funding comes primarily from television licence fees collected in Guernsey itself.[1]


A number of evening and weekend programmes are simulcast with BBC Local Radio stations in the South West and West. Radio 5 Live programming is simulcast overnight and on weekend afternoons.
