Gone are the days of George FM reception getting scratchy in places, or getting lost in the static as you leave Central Auckland.
They’ve twiddled the knobs, tweaked the dials, untangled the wires and cranked the dial to full power on our 96.8FM frequency in Auckland. So if you’d always loved George but couldn’t tune in – try again – chances are we’re broadcasting crystal clear wherever you are in the greater Auckland region. (Breakfast Host Nick D’s Mum in East Auckland can finally listen to her son!)
George FM Programme Director Thane Kirby is smiling from ear to ear. “It’s exciting times here at George. We have a fresh new breakfast show with Nick D, the station is sounding better than it ever has and now thousands and thousands of new listeners will be able to tune in!”
George FM General Manager, Emily Turnbull is pleased to see MediaWorks showing faith in their newly acquired station, bolstering its frequency strength both in Auckland and also in Queenstown. “The investment that MediaWorks is making in George FM is testament to the huge potential that everyone sees in the station.
When you look at the great results George FM has achieved with limited coverage, you can see why we’re so excited about the frequency power-up. To have George FM Auckland on a full power frequency is 10-years overdue!”
George FM started broadcasting in 1998 on a low power frequency from a Ponsonby bedroom where it built a cult following for dance and electronic music. The playlist now ranges from traditional club music like house and drum and bass, to specialist shows covering funk, indie, jazz, electro and beyond.
George FM hosts also regularly DJ including Nick D, Recloose, Dick Johnson, Clarke Gayford, Sam Hill, Bevan Keys, Tim Phin, Bulletproof, Philippa and 50 more.[ad]
