THE COAST FM STORY:
Coast FM 963 is a community radio station based in Gosford, broadcasting across the Central Coast of NSW. The station broadcasts 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, from its studio at 139 Faunce Street, with a variety of music and information programs that aim to reflect the lifestyle of the Central Coast.
From 6am to 6pm weekdays we play “Classic Hits”, a blend of timeless tracks from the 60s to the 90s. Specialty shows broadcast in the evenings and across the weekend, from youth night, to a range of music shows, sport, comedy, radio plays and local arts. The mood of Coast FM is relaxed and friendly, with a carefully chosen mix of music, local content, information and news.
You can tune into Coast FM locally at 96.3 on the FM dial, listen Live on the website – www.coastfm.org.au – or via the TuneIn Radio app.
Coast FM is a not-for-profit organisation – Central Coast Community FM Radio Association Inc. – was incorporated in 1988 – all the presenters on Coast FM are volunteers – around 60 in total. Volunteers also man the front office 9am to 12pm weekdays, do fundraising and other activities, and represent members on our management committee and other working groups. To support Coast FM’s mainly volunteer operation, and generate income for the station, we also have a station manager, sponsorship sales team, and office support.
Coast FM aims to be a local voice for the Central Coast community by broadcasting a diverse range of programs made by volunteers to inform, engage, entertain and connect the Central Coast community. Coast FM also aims to be of service to and accessible to community organisations and the broader community on the Central Coast, including through broadcast of community service announcements and interviews. You can e-mail community announcements or enquiries to email@example.com
Each year Coast FM runs comprehensive training for new volunteer presenters. If you’d like to get involved, contact the station manager – 4322 0072 – to enquire.
Coast FM is proud to be the longest running community radio station on the Coast, known as 2CCC till 2006, with a permanent broadcasting license since 1992. We are a proud member of the Community Broadcasting Association of Australia.
