BBC Local Radio has been broadcasting in Sussex since 1968, initially as BBC Radio Brighton. It was expanded to serve the whole county in 1983.

A service for Surrey launched in 1991 as an opt-out of BBC Sussex, broadcasting from our Guildford studio, and carrying Sussex programmes between its own local output.

The stations were combined in 1993 and then renamed BBC Southern Counties Radio in 1994. BBC SCR was originally launched as an all-talk service in 1994 serving Sussex, Surrey and North East Hampshire.

In 1997 the station was re-launched with three breakfast shows and music was introduced to the daytime schedule.

In March 2009, Southern Counties Radio became BBC Sussex broadcasting on 95.3, 104.5 and 104.8 FM. On the frequencies 104.0 and 104.6 FM listeners will hear BBC Surrey output.
