Melbourne Community radio station, 94.1FM 3WBC will broadcast AFLW matches in season 7 of Australia’s premier women’s football competition.
The non-profit community radio station will be broadcasting matches across AFLW Season with all games featuring the Hawthorn women’s team as they make their debut in an expanded 18 team competition.
3WBC has broadcast Victorian Football League (VFL) men’s and women’s games since 2008 including the Box Hill Hawks premierships of 2013 and 2018 and the Hawthorn women’s premiership of 2018.
Station president, Phil Edwards, says, “AFLW is bringing footy back to the suburbs and what better way to listen to the games than through people who live and love the game.
“As a community radio station, we give opportunities for people to develop and expand their broadcasting skills and our footy coverage is no different. Every voice you will hear on 3WBC comes from a different background, but what they do have in common is a love for the game”
“With the Box Hill City Oval being located only a short distance from 3WBC studios, covering the Hawks games has always been a natural fit for our community radio station. We love bringing stories and events – not only to our local audience but to a wider audience around Melbourne and Australia.”
