NZME to launch The Hits in new region

Staff Writer

NZME’s The Hits has had most of New Zealand covered up until this point, but the station will soon reach a new region.

Listeners in the popular coastal town of Coromandel will be able to tune in from December 1 – just in time for summer road trips and lazy beach days.

The Hits boasts a superstar line-up featuring some of the country’s best broadcasting talent, with Sarah, Sam and Toni at breakfast and Stace and Flynny on the afternoon drive show.

Content Director for The Hits Todd Campbell is excited to bring the station to the Coromandel just in time for a classic Kiwi summer.

“We’re sure listeners will love tuning in to our fantastic line-up of presenters and the biggest hits from the 90s til now around the BBQ this summer”.

The Hits will be available on 100.3FM in Pauanui, Tairua and Whangamata, 107.1FM in Thames and 106.9FM in Whitianga.

General Manager for Bay of Plenty Greg Murphy said the new frequencies will add variety for listeners and advertisers alike.

“Local companies will now be able to reach listeners all over the Coromandel, throughout the day.”

This is great news for the region. We’re partnering with NZME to bring The Hits across the Coromandel Peninsula just in time for summer (the best time to be on the coast).

Sarah, Sam and Toni for breakfast, mornings with Darren, Dave in the afternoons, Stace and Flynny for the drive home.

Local shows and local content will continue and we’re wrapped to be bringing some of the best broadcasters in New Zealand to the peninsula.

SEA FM’s announcement is Monday at 10am.

“Best Presenters in the Country”? Yeah nah. Not even close to the Top 10 in the country
This is an own goal.
More FM will continue to dominant The Hits.

Coast will and is a better option for the region. Which is good to see.

Its about time listeners had more options, this is great news for the region whilst keeping up with local content. The music has got to be better than the repetitive and boring crap that we are forced to listen to or turn off with the other stations.
