Bondi Radio Rescue
Bondi Radio has updated its programming and is in the process of introducing an entirely new program slate.
The changes come to the community station in view of a range of challenges associated with ownership and brand recognition.
23-year media and radio veteran, Geoff Bowser, will take charge at Bondi Radio, which has been broadcasting since 1907.
“A number of rogue members of the public have set up Bondi Radio stations online, all in an attempt to pass themselves off as radio stations in Bondi and as the original Bondi Radio, that has existed on AM then FM and online for a century in Bondi,” said Bowser, one of the owners of the station.
“Working with the federal government body for Radio Broadcasting, AMCA plus APRA AMCOS has helped clear this up.”
Bondi Radio will aim to not only keep the loyal local listeners happy, but also share some new music and entertainment on the airwaves, in the hope of continuing the legacy of being Australia’s international launch pad for artists and creative talent.
Program director and co-owner, Mr Mathers, said: “Bondi Radio has many talented people from Bondi On Air right now, some have started their careers on Bondi Radio and been around the world and back again with astounding accolades.”
