RadioReverb: The Sound Of Brighton & Hove

RadioReverb is Brighton & Hove’s local radio station, broadcasting on 97.2FM, on DAB+ and online. We are ‘the sound of your city’ with a team of home-grown broadcasters producing a vibrant mix of speech and new music programmes that reflects the Brighton & Hove community

RadioReverb provides an accessible, sustainable and accountable grassroots radio station for Brighton and Hove, broadcasting programmes on topics as diverse as the arts, healthy living, business, community issues, food and drink, LGBT+ lives and the environment, alongside highly regarded specialist music shows covering a wide range of genres.

We started back in 2004 with a 2-week trial broadcast during the Brighton Festival. In 2007 we were awarded a full community broadcasting licence.

Our Story

Our Presenters

All our presenters are all volunteers, generously giving their time to bring their unique programmes to your airwaves. It is with their help we have been able to create a stimulating forum for local discussion, providing a platform for musicians, artists, writers and creatives, learning and awareness raising, informed by principles of social justice and human rights.

RadioReverb aims to reflect the cultural, economic, social and creative needs of Brighton & Hove through our line up of diverse and talented presenters.
