Star Radio is an Independent Local Radio station broadcasting on 107.9 MHz in Cambridge and 107.1 MHz in Ely. It was originally launched as "Cambridge Café Radio". Later in 1998 it was relaunched as "Cambridge Red" and six months later as 107.9 The Eagle.

In 1999, the UKRD Group purchased the station. The following year it renamed Red as "107.9 The Eagle", in line with the other stations they owned. In 2001, UKRD rebranded the station again to Star 107.9, in line with the rebranding of their other stations.

Station Merger[edit]

In 2003, Star 107.1/5 in Ely and The Fens split frequencies. 107.5 in The Fens became Fen Radio 107.5, and 107.1 in Ely became a relay of Star 107.9. Because of this, the station adjusted their name to 107 Star FM. The name was adjusted again in 2004 to Star 107. Star 107 was rebranded in August 2005 as "Star Radio" co-inciding with the rebrand of the other "Star" network stations in the UKRD Group.
