BBC Radio Foyle (Irish: "BBC Raidió Feabhail ") is a BBC Northern Ireland local radio station, serving the North West of Northern Ireland. It is named after the River Foyle which flows through the city where the station is based. (This is a diplomatic move on the BBC's part, as the people who live in said city cannot agree whether to call it 'Derry' or 'Londonderry'.) The station broadcasts from the Northland Road studios in Derry's Cityside on 93.1 FM and 792 MW.

It is an opt out from BBC Radio's main Northern Ireland service, BBC Radio Ulster. BBC Radio Foyle's weekday schedule begins at 7:30am and continues until 5:00pm.
