Big Waves on the West Coast this October


Australia’s newest FM radio station is set to make waves on the west coast.


Launching this October, 917 The Wave will have a fresh, new sound reflecting the great West Aussie lifestyle.


Operated by West Coast Radio, 917 The Wave will be an FM evolution of the network’s current AM station, 1116 6MM. While still providing exciting content for the 35-plus audience, 917 The Wave will also have superior sound and reach with a fresh and expanded line-up of exciting new shows.


917 The Wave will launch an app so listeners can stream in high quality from anywhere in the world. The station website will include downloadable podcasts as well as the latest in local news, sport and entertainment. It will give listeners the opportunity to be a part of 917 The Wave by rating the music, and act as a local hub where people can discuss local issues and discover nearby events and businesses through an online directory.


917 The Wave Content Director, John De Bellis, said there was a buzz around the station in the lead up to the launch.


“As the date gets closer, the team is really excited. They have been working hard for many months to ensure we produce a great radio station that is 100 per cent local and relevant.


“The broadcast will originate from our local studios with some exceptional on-air talent; we’ll make an announcement about line-up and the launch date soon so watch this space”.
