The ACE Radio Network will transition its 3WM AM station to FM frequency next month meaning listeners in the Ararat district can tune into 96.1FM after Friday, August 12.
ACE Radio Network content director Adam Roche says ‘the switch’ had been a long time in the works.
He says,“As we continue to strive to entertain and inform our listeners, we are always looking at ways to enhance the listening experience.
“ACMA, the Australian Communications and Media Authority, has issued us an FM license in the Ararat region, allowing us to provide all our 3WM programming on the new FM frequency of 96.1.”
ACE Radio Network owner Rowly Paterson, General Manager Brendan O’Loughlin, Ararat Rural City Council chief executive Dr Tim Harrison and deputy mayor Bob Sanders will join Roche to flick the switch at 2.30pm.
