Kingstown Radio is a hospital radio station based in Kingston upon Hull, England, broadcasting on 1350 kHz (AM), to patient's bedside hospedia systems and via the local NHS intranet across the Hull and East Yorkshire NHS Trust.

It is a registered charity. In July 2011, the station celebrated its 50th anniversary and it continues to have a strong following with listeners.

Kingstown Radio's music policy means it plays a wider choice of music than other stations in the area, with songs from the pre-60's to now. It also, keeps listeners in touch with events and information from the local area including sporting events like Hull City A.F.C., Hull FC and Hull KR matches.

Many presenters now on local radio stations across the UK started out on Kingstown Radio. Among them are names familiar to regular listeners of local stations, including BBC Radio Humberside and KCFM like James Hoggarth, Mike White, Garry Fuller of Gaydio, John Fox from Free Radio and Rob Langley.
