Hastings Community Radio station, 2WAYFM (103.9) is on air constantly until Sunday April 9, to raise much-needed funds. 2WAY FM supports the local community through service announcements, local information and a diverse range of music, information, news, sport and weather and is a popular alternative to commercial, syndicated stations.
The station studios, located in Wauchope, are completely powered by a dedicated and very passionate team of volunteers, who are all keen to support and entertain the Hastings local community.
While 2WAYFM recently celebrated its 30 year anniversary, the station remains a not-for-profit organisation, relying upon and supporting the local community, which it services as the only local voice on air.
“The station is an icon in in the Hastings Valley with a dedicated and growing audience that appreciates less talk and more music” President, Liz Faassen said. “Many listeners regard our presenters as friends.
“As you may appreciate, technology is changing rapidly and we need to keep up with the changes,” she said.
Technical facilities alone are a large cost to running the station and Liz said they would really appreciate the support the community. There are prizes up for grabs for listeners who pledge a donation by phoning the station or by email.
“By donating, you’ll be investing in your local on-air voice, and we sincerely thank all listeners and sponsors in advance” said Liz.
