Kerrang! Radio is a specialist rock music radio station broadcasting to the West Midlands in England. The station's format mixes modern & classic rock with speech programmes targeted at young people and an adult rock audience. The station broadcasts on FM in the West Midlands and DAB, Freeview and online across the UK, boasting a large audience of 1.3 million listeners. It is connected with the Kerrang! print magazine in name, ownership and style, although the radio station has a more mainstream adult rock output than the magazine, featuring more indie and alternative rock. However the night shows are very much fuelled by the traditional Kerrang! Magazine sound, with a wider and less mainstream style, playing a mix of punk and metal bands. The station is unique and does not share its programming with any other radio stations.

The station is based in Lionel Street in the city of Birmingham near to the BT Tower, and it broadcasts from the Sutton Coldfield transmitter, covering a wide area including Warwickshire, Derbyshire and Leicestershire.
