Kingdom FM is a radio station serving the Kingdom of Fifemarker, Scotlandmarker as an Adult Contemporary station. KingdomFM is based in Markinchmarker - on the outskirts of Glenrothesmarker in central Fife. It can be received as far away as Edinburghmarker, Dundeemarker and Stirlingmarker via an FM Radio, and broadcasts via the World Wide Web from www.kingdomfm.co.uk.

According to their charter of service, KingdomFM is "the voice of Fife and is highly focussed on local issues with a high level of community involvement"

KingdomFM's music, as guided by Ofcom is "a spread of hits from across the years (60s onwards), mixed with easy listening, melodic recurrents and current chart music (although current chart music should not make up more than a quarter of the music output)".

Kingdom Radio Group bought Lanarkshire station Clan FM in 2004 and relaunched it has 107 The Edge. Ian Sewell, then Chief Exeutive of the Kingdom Radio Group, left shortly before 107 The Edge closed and was replaced by Kevin Brady. The Lanarkshire license was later sold due to debt. Kevin Brady, along with 107 The Edge Programme Controller Darren Stenhouse continued in the same positions at Fife's Kingdom FM.
