All The News From A Very Busy August 2018


The Fraser Coast FM 107.5 brand new website is now up and running!  It has been migrated to our new platform and is proudly hosted and supported through the CBAA. Their friendly web developers have done an outstanding job of retaining the functionality, look and feel of our old website so we will all feel right at home immediately.

We have added some exciting new content, however. Firstly it would be hard to miss the new DONATE button on the top RH side of the screen.  This new Secure functionality allows us to safely accept online donations from our listening community.  Online Donations can be made either by a secure credit card transaction or via PayPal.

We also now have the ability to publish Podcasts online. Presenter Jeff Mitchell is the first to take advantage of this facility with his “Let’s Call Australia Home” series of Podcasts, showcasing the Hervey Bay TAFE English Language Students.  It is a very entertaining show, check it out!


Now that the new “VIA”  OB Equipment is up and running our presenters and volunteers have been busy running live Outside Broadcasts from the Burrum Coalfest and the Hervey Bay Senior’s Expo.

On the 4th and 5th of August, to mark Fraser Coast Fm’s 25th Birthday we are broadcasting live from City Park all day on Saturday 4th and again in the Studio at 30 Halcro Street on Sunday 5th. Come down and join in our celebration!
