94.1 FM celebrates 10 years of entertaining the Gold Coast
It’s been a double celebration of sorts for the team at 94.1FM on the Gold Coast.
The community station turned 10 on April 1st this year, but unfortunately wasn’t able to celebrate at the time.
So the team combined its Christmas Party with the station’s tenth birthday celebrations.
More than 40 board members, staff, volunteers and family got together recently to mark the occasion at the Northcliffe Surf Lifesaving Club.
The station was set up to bring alternative programming for the Goldie’s 50+ community – targeting the Baby Boomers right through to the top end of Gen X.
Surveys show the station has over 100K weekly listeners and is growing.
CEO Gary Field says he’s extremely proud of the whole team, whose radio experience and hard work has truly brought together the Gold Coast community.
He says the new year will see a number of new shows introduced to the format with new station personalities such as Craig Bennett and Tania Zaetta.
Gary believes that now is the time for community stations to truly offer alternative ‘local’ services.
Gary himself was among those who had the honour of cutting the spectacular 10 year birthday cake, along with other 10 Year Club original presenters, Gary Boughen, Niven Walton and John Kerr (main picture).
