Beat 102 103 is an independent regional radio station in Republic of Ireland licensed by the Broadcasting Commission of Ireland covering counties Waterford, Carlow, Kilkenny, Wexford and Tipperary in South East Ireland.

The station is a Top 40 Hit/CHR station aimed at listeners aged between 15 and 35.
On 13 April 2007, Cork based Thomas Crosbie Holdings (TCH) announced it had acquired 75% ownership of both Beat 102 103 and WLR FM, in a deal worth a combined €14 million with WLR FM managing director Des Whelan keeping 25% of each.
