BBC Radio Cornwall is the BBC Local Radio service for the Cornwall, in the United Kingdom, also covering the Isles of Scilly. It broadcasts from its studios in Truro on 95.2, 96.0 and 103.9 FM, as well as on DAB.

Prior to its launch on 17 January 1983, BBC regional radio broadcasting for Cornwall amounted to the breakfast show 'Morning Sou'West' on the AM frequencies of Radio 4 in Devon and Cornwall. Initially, Radio Cornwall shared an afternoon programme with BBC Radio Devon, but now sustains a full daytime service. The station also broadcasts a short weekly news bulletin in the Cornish language.

Radio Cornwall links up with other BBC local stations in the South West and West regions for a networked evening service, broadcast from Truro between 7pm and 1am.

Programming

Notable weekday programming includes Pam Spriggs on early mornings (including 'Farming Today'), James Churchfield & Pam Spriggs on mornings, David White on mid-days, Laurence Reed at lunchtime, Donna Birrell on afternoons, Martin Bailie with in-depth news round-up on evenings, the Duncan Warren followed by John Govier, both of whom are simulcast with BBC Radio stations in Devon, Guernsey & Jersey.

Radio 5 Live's Up All Night is simulcast overnight after closedown.

Trivia

In 2002, Eric Moore and Chris Blount did a tour of the entire Cycle Ways from Lands End to Bude, this included interviews with people of interest. They also visited gardens and Kings Harry Ferry. This went on for well over 2 years, but was only broadcast 3 times a weeks on Saturday, Sunday, and Tuesday Afternoon.

The station hosts an annual singing competition at the Royal Cornwall Show, where Cornish singers compete in different categories to find the champion each year. Various guest judges have been on the panel in different years, including Nikki French and Naomi Lay.
