EXCLUSIVE: ARN’s new youth station CADA to launch this week

ARN will relaunch The Edge 96.1 as CADA, a national youth media platform anchored in Hip Hop and R&B.

The switchover to CADA will take place at 4pm this Thursday 31 March, the last day of the month.

The Edge will shift from its current model as a Western Sydney FM broadcaster to its new national platform CADA, Australia’s home of Hip Hop and R&B. It will be available on FM in Sydney, DAB+ nationally and globally via iHeartRadio.

CADA will provide a new avenue for both local and international Hip Hop and R&B artists to showcase their music on a station with national multi-platform reach.

As we predicted last week in our article Reinventing Youth Radio, the presenters will not be traditional radio presenters but will include social media influencers and personalities.

  • Flex & Froomes, 5-6pm, weekdays
  • Keeping Up with Avneesha, 3-5pm, weekdays
  • Kian & Yaz, Breakfast 6-9am, weekdays
