Kingdom FM began broadcasting on Monday 5 October 1998.
The station expanded its radio business in 2004 when it brought Lanarkshire-based Clan FM, which relaunched as 107 The Edge, and West Lothian station River FM. Both stations failed to turn a profit - The Edge was sold onto Mark Page within a year and relaunched again as L107 (closed in 2010). River FM ceased broadcasting in January 2007 after efforts to sell the station failed.
In February 2014, Kingdom FM changed their positioning statement to Fife's Feel Good Station, and launched a new imaging package from Reelworld. The station's managing director is Blair Crofts with Darren Stenhouse as station manager.
The majority of Kingdom FM's programming is produced and broadcast from its Kirkcaldy studios. The syndicated show, Totally 90s, is produced by Blue Revolution and airs on Sunday afternoons. The station's presenters include Dave Connor and head of music Vanessa Motion (Kingdom Breakfast), Euan Notman (weekday daytime), Stuart McCafferty (weekday drivetime), Matt Shields (evenings) and programme controller Darren Stenhouse (weekday nights).
News and sport
Local news bulletins air hourly from 6am – 7pm on weekdays and 8am – 2pm at weekends with news headlines and sports bulletins on the half hour during breakfast and drivetime on weekdays. National bulletins from Sky News Radio in London air at all other times.
The station's news team are editor Rebecca Bell and broadcast journalists Niamh Milne and Steve McCaul.
Kingdom FM's current jingle package is produced by ReelWorld - the station's imaging voices are Mark Chadwick and Julie Love, with promotions voiced by Steve Henderson.
Kingdom FM's registered charity, Kingdom Kids, supports under privileged and disadvantaged youngsters in Fife, raising and distributing money for groups and individuals within the broadcast area. The charity was relaunched in May 2014 and expanded its operations.
