BBC Radio Kent is the BBC Local Radio service for the Englishmarker county of Kentmarker. Launched in 1970 as BBC Radio Medway, originally serving the Medway Towns from Chathammarker. It gained its current name when operations expanded to Kent in 1983 as part of the BBC's policy of operating countywide stations.

It broadcasts on FM on 96.7 (West Kent, Wrotham transmittermarker), 97.6 (Folkestonemarker area) and 104.2 (East Kent, Swingate transmitter) also 774 (Littlebournemarker) and 1602 (Rusthall) MW and DAB.

Radio Medway used to be at 30 High Street Chathammarker and continued there for three years after its transition to Radio Kent. A former newspaper office, 30 High Street was subsequently named Media House. From 1986 it transferred to nearby Sun Pier, from where it broadcast in stereo for the first time. Radio Medway was closed down by long serving staff member Rod Lucas. He was also the first voice to be heard on the new BBC Radio Kent.

In 2001, the station moved to The Great Hall in Tunbridge Wellsmarker to combine with new television studios for the re-aligned BBC South East region, covering Kent and East Sussex.
