Change afoot at ACE Radio
Scheduled programming at ACE Radio’s 3YB and Coast FM will broadcast from a brand new state of the art media centre starting tomorrow.
Victorian Senator Mitch Fifield officially opened the studio today, marking another major local community investment by ACE Radio since taking over ownership of 3YB in 1994.
The studio will include advanced digital broadcast equipment allowing for future developments such as DAB+ and the provision of multimedia and live video content.
The famous 3YB call sign is also on the move. The station will leave behind the AM broadcast band in the last quarter of 2018 and make its new home on FM, swapping frequencies with Vision Radio Australia.
Chairman of ACE Radio, Rowly Paterson, commended senator Fifield’s support of AM/FM conversion across Australia and regional markets.
“I would like to thank David Speyer and Conrad Browne from Vision Australia Radio Network for working with us on this historic broadcast frequency change,” he said.
“This is not only great for our listeners, but will also benefit our good friends at Vision Australia Radio Network, known for their support of people who are blind or who have low vision in our community.”
