Former 4KQ and 97.3FM General Manager, Peter Verhoeven has been appointed President of Logan Radio Inc. at its AGM replacing radio stalwart Alan Casonati who sought not to renominate after his very successful four year term. Casonati will continue at 101FM in a sales management role and as a casual on air presenter. Full story.
With Peter Verhoevens outstanding career in commercial radio he is looking forward to adding his expertise to continue making 101FM one of the countrys leading community radio stations.
Given the virtual national trend by the big operators to centralise broadcasting to fewer locations, new radio talent can feel comfortable that community stations will fill the void of local radio being even more relevant going forward. Verhoeven said the station has become a valuable entity in local media and with its adult contemporary music format featuring the Biggest Hits & Greatest Memories along with a range of specialised music shows and presenters it provides a mix that reflects the local community.
101FMs daytime lineup features a mix of both former experienced commercial presenters like Paul Barrett, Gray Tienan, Ian Bluey George, Mike Bennett, Terry(TJ) Blacker, Mal West and Dave Wallan along with some of the best community radio presenters, gives Logan City a radio station that really looks after the its community.
