BBC Radio Shropshire is the BBC Local Radio service for the English county of Shropshire. Launched on 23 April 1985 it broadcasts from its studios in Shrewsbury on 96 (in Central and North Shropshire), 90 (from Hazler Hill in Church Stretton), 95 (in Ludlow), 104.1 (in Clun) FM and DAB (digital radio). The radio service also has secondary broadcast premises in nearby Telford.


The 96FM signal from The Wrekin is the strongest, and can be heard from outside the county, especially along the M5 and M6 near Birmingham, as well as into Staffordshire. It can also be received reliably in Wrexham and as a result, throughout North East Wales. The other transmitters have a much weaker signal only heard up to about 6 miles (10 km) away at most. inote|BBC|BBCrange The Wrekin transmitter also broadcasts the commercial station Beacon FM on 103.1FM, Digital One, the MXR West Midlands 12A multiplex and BBC DAB National. The transmitters also have television, and Ludlow has national radio frequencies. DAB signals started on 31 January 2001 from the NOW Digital [ Wolverhampton, Shrewsbury and Telford 11B] multiplex. This also has BBC WM and comes from the Wrekin and Turners Hill (near Oldbury and can be seen close to junction 2 of the M5).
