“It’s fantastic to be involved with a team that embrace their stations growth strategy and execute brilliant content every day. I am so excited the Sunshine coast audience recognise the effort the whole team put into making the great local radio”, said EON group CD Rod Brice.

“We’re thrilled with today’s result being officially recognised as the Sunshine Coast’s #2 radio station,” added Hot 91 GM David Graham.

Mix’s afternoon and drive figures are impressive 21.8/19.3 respectively.
Good wins for local content.
Well done to all involved.
A lesson for the ENTIRE radio industry.

Gosh what happened to sea! Feeling the sting of Jess Eva’s departure to Triple M Sydney by the looks.

Big drop for SeaFM Breaky? No.4? Looks like the audience went to hot91 after Jess Eva’s departure. Good on Triple M for nabbing her.

Congratulations to the local teams at Mix FM & Hot 91.

Their breakfast/wider teams have slogged it out & deserve this result.

‘Interesting’ numbers for Sea FM – perhaps a fall out from Jess leaving to Triple M?
