Albury station relaunched

Albury-Wodonga community broadcaster 107.3 FM will relaunch on Sunday (August 4) with a new name and new programming. The relaunched ‘Ten73 Border FM’ will include “a streamlined program schedule to ensure that similar types of programs start at the same time every day.”

New manager, Michael Baker, told AMT “the new name and new schedule, should make for a more user-friendly sound with more appeal to listeners.” From Sunday Ten73 will schedule the hourly National Radio News service produced by journalism course staff and students at Charles Sturt University’s Bathurst campus. It will replace a news service from a Sydney commercial radio station, which the station has aired for several years.

As part of the launch, country singing star Troy Cassar-Daley will appear live on Ten73 with the station’s veteran country music personality Keith Melbourne. Ten73 includes “a diverse range music and talk with a horseracing service Mondays to Saturdays, and on most Sundays.” Ten73 began as “Radio Ettamogah” in a modest farmhouse 22 years ago.
