We are a local not-for-profit Community Radio Station, run entirely by volunteers. This includes all On-Air Presenters, Administration, Promotion, Board Members and Technical Support. Many of our volunteers hold multiple roles in order for our station to continue to run at the high standards we aim to achieve.
We began in 1999 by local enthusiasts and musicians, who with their own time and money, not only located a place to broadcast from, but learnt the technical side of how to distribute their voices and music across the region. From this small, dedicated group of people, we have become a well-respected community radio station that now runs from a studio located at 45a Walker Street, South Bundaberg.
Coral Coast Radio is very fortunate to have announcers that range in age, interest and ethnicity and can boast a wide range of programs including wholly multi-cultural dialogue and music (such as Afrikaans, Hungarian and Spanish amongst others), dedicated Breakfast and Drivetime programs, a Saturday Night listener request show, Religious Programs and varied music shows including Country, Blues, Jazz, Rockabilly, Modern and Easy Listening.
Coral Coast Radio listeners are community minded people. If your message is heard on our airwaves, your business becomes community minded too.
Our listeners understand how important it is to support their local businesses. In 2012, the fifth Community Radio National Listener Survey conducted by McNair Ingenuity Research illustrated a consistent, strong and dedicated community radio audience in the face of a rapidly changing media environment and increased listening options.
The results showed:
- 58, 502 people (15+) in our broadcast area.
- Audience reach of average 12, 870 in a typical week (22% of 15+ population)
- Audience reach of average 31, 591 in average month (54% of 15+ population)
- On average, community radio listeners tune in for 9.3 hours in a typical week
