Radio Exe is a locally focused radio station for Exeter and the surrounding area that is designed to appeal to a broad range of adult listeners, particularly those aged 35–54, with a full service of comprehensive news and local information, engaging speech features and conversation and a wide variety of music from the 60s to the present day.
Exeter FM launched on 18 February 2008 as part of the London-based Sunrise Radio Group.
In June 2011, the station was taken over by Exe Broadcasting Ltd, a new company owned by local broadcasters Paul Nero and Mark Tyler.
The re-branded Radio Exe began broadcasting on Tuesday 10 January 2012 at 7:55 am, when breakfast presenter Ben Clark played Billy Joel’s River of Dreams.
In August 2016, Devon Radio Ltd, owned fully by Celador Radio sold their 40% share in Radio Exe. This also lead to the resignation of Paul Smith CBE, a director of the station who is also the Chairman of Celador resulting in the station becoming 100% locally controlled and owned.
