Real Radio (also known as Real Radio FM) is a network of adult contemporary independent local radio stations in central southern England and north Wales and is operated by GMG Radio. Each station broadcasts local breakfast and drive time shows and simulcasts network programming at all other times. The five stations in the United Kingdom operate under the Real Radio banner as for Real Radio (Wales) 105–106FM and on Sky Channel 0146, Real Radio (Yorkshire) 106–108FM, Real Radio (Scotland) 100–101FM, Real Radio (North East) 100–102FM and Real Radio (North West) 105.4FM.

The brand was established in South Wales by John Myers, based on the Century Radio brand that he set up for Border Television. GMG later purchased the remaining Centruy stations, rebranding them into Real.

Real Radio has news on every hour, 24 hours a day, provided by Real Radio journalists. In addition they also take Sky News Radio after midnight.

However in addition to the above listed stations, Real Radio also operated a digital-only station, Real Radio (Digital), which broadcast on DAB in several areas where Real did not broadcast on analogue, and also broadcast on Sky Digital. In 2008, Real Digital closed, replaced by the new Jazz FM (UK) in several locations (it was replaced by Rock Radio in the North East and by a relay of Real Radio Wales on Sky).
