COUNTRY RADIO STATION SEEKS NEW HOME

New campaign to fund relocation
THE Central Coast’s hugely successful Country Music station todayscountry94one is seeking a new home and has launched a Go Fund Me campaign to cover the cost of the relocation and new broadcast infrastructure.

The station has traditionally broadcast from Central Coast Leagues Club; however, the Club is about to undergo a major redevelopment and the station will be forced to vacate by the end of 2020.
 
The station is Australia’s leading Country Music broadcaster with a massive national and international following. It is run by a volunteer staff of Country music devotees and has won many national awards.
 
The move means the todayscountry94one will need to find new premises and set up two new studios costing around $100,000 by December.
 
Station Chairman Colin Links said the Go Fund Me campaign would allow regular listeners to assist with funding the move and upgrade by donating.
 
“We hope that our followers will be keen to help us make the move by making a small donation on The Go Fund Me page. We help to promote Country Music in Australia and make it possible for listeners to hear their favorite music, whether they are in Gosford, Townsville or Perth,” Mr Links said.
 
The station has a glittering array of award successes including being named Australian Country Music Peoples’ Choice Award winner for Most Popular Radio Station in 2012, 2014, 2015 and 2018.
 
Independent research showed that 44,000 people on the Central Coast listened to todayscountry94one at some time each week with 91% of those listeners rating it their favorite station.
 
The station had unusual beginnings when Country music icons Adam Harvey and Rod McCormack had a phone conversation just over a decade ago. They decided to take over the 94one license from the previous owner.
 
In 2010 they were granted a five license and the station began broadcasting at Long Jetty before eventually moving to the current premises in the Leagues Club.
 
“In the following years we have been able to upgrade some equipment through grants and sponsorships, but it is now time to upgrade to state-of the-art digital equipment to provide our loyal audience with best possible listening experience,” Mr Links said.
 
todayscountry94one is on air 24/7 and streams nationally and internationally on its website: todayscountry94one.com. Volunteers include presenters, technicians, admin assistants and directors.
