A light wave is an electromagnetic wave i.e. it is a type of radiation hence it doesn't need a medium to propagate since it travels in form of energy packets called photons
A sound wave is a mechanical wave which propagates due to the vibration caused by the medium particles which in turn transmit it. Therefore, without a medium, sound waves can't transmit.
