A new look for Geelong radio

It’s out with the old and in with the new for K rock and bay 93.9 FM in Geelong. After years of meticulous planning and building, Geelong Broadcasters has unveiled its new studios.

Still based at 93 Moorabool Street, the entire operation has been moved to the first floor with both stations undergoing their first major overhaul in almost three decades.

General Manager Andy Mathers admits it has been an emotional few days for all involved.

“The reaction from the team, when we moved into the facilities last week, justified the enormous amount of work and years of planning we have put into this amazing new space.”

“I will admit there were a few moments shared by some of the team when leaving level three for the last time; 29 years of memories and wonderful times shared.”

bay 93.9 content director Mark Hyland believes the rebuild is a vote of confidence for the Geelong market.

“After 22 years with Geelong Broadcasters, this has been the biggest change to our facilities I have seen.”

“The state of the art studios and office space ensures the radio stations will be the best in country for many years to come.”

K rock content director James Speed is just as pumped about the new digs.

“It’s always an exciting day to walk into a radio station and do what we love, but walking into THIS station makes it even better.”
