Ridings FM is the Independent Local Radio station serving the Wakefield District of West Yorkshire since 3 October 1999. It is owned and operated by the Lincs FM Group. The station was originally based at Thornes Office Park in Wakefield before co-locating with sister station Dearne FM at Zenith Park on Whaley Road, Barugh Green, in the north-west of Barnsley in 2009. Following a memorandum sent to Ofcom, which stated that the station has never made a profit although being a technical success, Ridings FM was moved to Doncaster where it shares a building with Trax FM, Dearne FM and Rother FM.

The station’s news team won a Sony Bronze award in May 2000, and is made up of Tina Masters, Rachel-Louise Gerrish, Jemma Hall, Will Chalk and Joe Bearsdall. At off peak times the station uses the feed from Independent Radio News. As well as news, Ridings FM covers local sports teams from the Wakefield Trinity Wildcats, Castleford Tigers and Featherstone Rovers in rugby league, to Ossett Albion, Ossett Town, Frickley Athletic and Wakefield F.C. in football.
