Spirit FM began broadcasting in April 1996 as an independent radio station. Its original chairman was David Palmer. The founding MD was Steve Oates.
In June 2020 Bauer announced that the station "will be rebranded as “Greatest Hits Radio”, offering classic hits from the ‘70s, ‘80s and ‘90s".
Spirit FM was awarded the licence to broadcast to West Sussex by the former Radio Authority, now Ofcom, in 1995 and was a radio station that was part of the UKRD Group In 2020, after being acquired by Bauer from UKRD, it become part of the national Greatest Hits Radio brand, while later in the year many of the ex-presenters of Spirit FM were hired by a new local DAB station called V2 Radio.
Greatest Hits Radio is wholly owned by Bauer Radio and has a quasi-national programme format.
