Riding the airwaves of success

Bursting with fun and boasting not only the hottest hits of now and old school, but the most popular shows in the country, 91.9 Sea FM is the Sunshine Coast’s number one station for under 40s.

Combining the perfect blend of original local content, familiar faces and of course, the best beats, 91.9 Sea FM has cemented itself as the hottest radio station on the Sunshine Coast for locals under 40.

Playing a combination of today’s biggest songs and the greatest hits of the ‘90s and naughties, their clever introduction of RnB Fridays last year has tapped into the nostalgia of the Coast’s younger audiences and become a much-loved part of the station’s programming.

Add to that a killer lineup of hilarious and wildly popular announcers, and all the latest celebrity gossip, and it’s clear 91.9 Sea FM is onto a winning formula.

Representing the Sunshine Coast locally is Sea’s cheeky and honest breakfast duo, BarRat and Jess, who have been connecting with listeners through their outrageous and at times raw stories since 2013.

Helping listeners get through their work day are fellow locals, Holly and Ethan – the announcers who guide us through Sea’s upbeat morning and afternoon programs and keep the hits coming.

Then comes what is arguably the most popular lineup of personalities across the nation, with The Project’s Carrie Bickmore and comedian Tommy Little kicking off the 3pm to 4pm hour, followed by Australia’s favourite besties, Hamish and Andy, and shock-jocks Kyle and Jackie O.

The fun doesn’t stop on weekends either, with a variety of current countdowns providing the perfect playlist for wherever your adventures take you.

With over 380,000 followers on Facebook; 605,600 views on their web page, and a weekly post engagement of up to 1.7 million, only one station has its finger on the pulse of life on the Sunshine Coast for Generation X and Y.

So whether you’re looking for a radio station that you can relate to as a listener, or you’re a business looking for effective broadcast advertising that will reach your target audience, make the switch to 91.9 Sea FM and join the thousands of locals who have made it their go-to for engaging listening.
