4AK and 4WK still very much owned by Bill and Pam
arn regional news format has changed. it is now divided into 2 parts and 2 different readers. 1st is the local news and sport which is called local news now and goes for 2 mins which a local reader, then it goes national news now which is the national news and sport with a national reader which also goes for 2 mins
They’re going to need at least 6-7 of such bulletins to satisfy their local news requirements for local content licence conditions.
Been like that since last week.
oh ok. thanks for letting me know
No problem. I personally think the format is the wrong way round. It should be National News first, then Local News as then it goes into Local Weather
If you have a local news reader why aren’t they doing national headlines as well? What’s the point?
2GO used to structure their news this way prior to divestment when they were the GO in Wesgo.
Mel Dee Dzelde died this morning at 52, after twin battles with rectal cancer and MND. Her husband Chris made the announcement on Instagram late this afternoon.
Hot 91 on the Sunshine Coast now go by the name 91.1 Hot FM.
RDS changed to 911HotFM
Not a bad idea to change the RDS, means if sorted by name on radios (such as my i30) they appear before Sea and Mix.
I saw this last night too, very recent change. While it looks uglier (in my opinion) it makes sense as their two competitors have 919 and 927 as the start of their station names in their RDS too.
Gold Central Victoria now using the Gold 104.3 news and sport themes. National news appears to be coming from Gold Melbourne or WSFM Sydney now too.
Interesting. I wonder if they’ll start to extend the Gold branding to other regional markets.
Gold Central Victoria was known as Gold well before the ARN takeover.
Yeah I know it was a no brainer but I wouldn’t be surprised if they use Gold in other markets eventually.
I’d also like to see Cruise rolled out to other markets. It goes well for some of the regional stations where there’d be a fair bit of country driving.
Cruise should be on DAB in the other metros too. It’s a no brainer especially in Brisbane after losing 4KQ
just been listening to the radio and looking at lava and it seems that power FM Ballarat has joined the arn regional network log??? from 6-8 pm also noticed krock Geelong was also playing the log on their station since there was no will and woody and power FM Ballarat normally air it from 6-8pn
It probably wasn’t on KIIS either.
I’m pretty sure they are never on (even repeats) in early January. Just like nova and KTJ. Repeats til Xmas then nothing til they’re back.
