NZME expands Coast FM
NZME has added a new market for the network brand Coast FM.
Coast will launch in Whanganui at the end of the month on 98.4 FM. Coast Content Director, Raylene Ramsay said:, “We have identified a market opportunity in Whanganui for a music station that plays the music you grew up with, and love to sing along to from the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s. Not to mention, we received loads of emails and requests from locals requesting the station come to town!”
It’s Coast FM’s Breakfast Brian Kelly’s hometown, “Whanganui is where I grew up and the first seeds were sown for my interest in radio. From the moment I heard the sounds coming out of Mr Glenngarys fancy big radio station 2XA, then 2ZW, on Nelson Street (now Cook Street) where we lived, I wanted to be a radio announcer. I’ve been on Coast Breakfast for four years and I love working on this great station with a wonderful team of announcers..”
