KOFM and 4TOFM rebrand under Triple M
KOFM will become Triple M Newcastle on Friday, November 9 while 4TOFM launches as Triple M Townsville on Monday, September 3.
The two stations will fall under the national Triple M Network, which will grow to 36 stations across Australia (plus four digital stations).
Both stations will continue to produce local shows and content, including Tanya and Steve in Newcastle on Breakfast, and Pricey for Breakfast in Townsville, as well as the widest variety of music, sport and comedy.
“We are proud and passionate about the communities we are part of and the local content we deliver,” said SCA head of content for regional radio Mickey Maher.
“We’re excited to bring one of the country’s most iconic media brands, Triple M to Newcastle and Townsville.”
Triple M’s nationally syndicated Drive program Kennedy Molloy will continue to be broadcast to both stations on weekdays from 4pm-6pm.
KOFM and 4TOFM will also hear the Triple M NRL call from Thursday to Sunday throughout the season.
