Sovereign FM is an Independent Local Radio station serving Eastbourne, Hailsham, Polegate and surrounding areas. It is owned and operated by Media Sound Holdings and broadcasts from studios in Worthing, as part of a network of locally-branded stations across Sussex.

Sovereign Radio was founded in 1992 by local radio executives Mark Briggs and Matthew Wheeler, who established RSL trial broadcasts in December 1992 and the summer of 1993. The second RSL was based on board an old ferry from the Shetland Islandscalled the Earl of Zetland, which was temporarily moored in Sovereign Harbour. Some of the station’s original presenters included Gavin Lawrence, Paul Martin, Terry James and Zora Suleman.

The broadcasts were part of a campaign to demonstrate viability to the Radio Authority (a legacy regulator now part of Ofcom) to advertise a full licence. The full licence was eventually awarded in 1994 to a group which included many of the original team. It was later acquired by The Local Radio Company in 2000 and for a year, was once again managed by co-founder Mark Briggs, who also managed neighbouring sister stations Arrow FM in Hastings and Neptune Radio (now KMFM in Dover and Folkestone).
