I Believe in Christmas

Sea FM Central Coast’s New Breakfast Team

Sea FM on the Central Coast is welcoming a fresh face and a familiar voice to Breakfast in 2015, with a new breakfast show hosted by Byron Cooke and Kristie Mercer.

Byron is currently on-air with Sea FM’s networked Weekend Breakfast and Fox FM on mornings. He was also an integral part of the highly successful Fifi and Jules Show.

The Central Coast has become a second home to Byron, who said, “My parents moved to the Central Coast in 2002 to start a business. I've been on-air at Sea FM for the last four years via our networked shows in Drive and Weekend Breakfast, so I'm no stranger from a radio point of view either. There are no words to explain how awesome it's going to be to be a part of the Central Coast community.”


Super Radio Network Upgrade

The Super Radio Network has 36 AM and FM stations, 45 translators as well as 5 Sydney DAB+ Radio Stations.

They are a big group in the scheme of things and they are about to upgrade and expand their satellite distribution network.

SEA 20 SUMMIT… no shirt fronting required

91.9 Sea FM on the Sunny Coast took a different tact when it came to doing a Listener Advisory Board. With the G20 on in Brisbane, they created the first ever SEA 20 Summit.

Lining up 20 listeners during the week to probe them on the big world issues, well maybe it was not that in depth but they did talk about the station, the music, the guys and girls On-Air and the Sunshine Coast Lifestyle.

 “With the high level of security that is present, there was no way Sea FM would have been able to pull of any stunt, so we look at doing something similar to what was actually going on… let’s have our own Summit” said Content Director; Ryan Khay.

Like all summits, delegates were bribed with a free feed and prizes with the Sea FM on-air team popping in and welcoming the listeners before the forum started each night.
