Radio St Austell Bay (RSAB, often incorrectly called St Austell Bay Radio) is a not for profit, community radio station. The radio station is funded by a combination of National Lottery and Arts Council funding, alongside a small amount of commercial advertising and sponsorship. Partners include The Eden Project, The Lost Gardens of Heligan, Cornish Guardian, and Restormel Borough Council [http://www.rsab.org Partners Page] . All of these present shows on the station.

RSAB ran a Short Term RSL in February 2006, and presented their community programmes for 2 weeks. The response to the station suggested a desire for such a full time service. RSAB's signal from Tregorrick Park (90 metres AMSL) could be picked up as far away as Plymouth whilst operating within OFCOM regulations.

In February 2007, OFCOM granted Radio St Austell Bay a community radio station license. The station started broadcasting on January 28th 2008, on 105.6FM, and online.

RSAB broadcasts from a transmitter at Tregorrick Park (Home of St Austell RFC), which is in St Austell.

As its name suggests, Radio St Austell Bay covers the whole area from Tywardreath in the east to Sticker in the west, without focusing solely on St Austell town itself. St Austell is the largest settlement and the St Austell Bay area is the largest conurbation in Cornwall, surpassing the Camborne-Pool-Redruth area
