Woman who helped define FBi’s sound moves on

After more than seven years in the role, Caroline Gates is moving on from the position as FBi Radio‘s Program Director. 

FBi says Caroline has played a pivotal role in defining the sound of the station and in developing FBi Radio into a cross platform offering. She has trained hundreds of broadcasters and young content creators, whom have gone on to positions at the ABC, various youth media platforms and within the music industry.
Highlights in her time as Program Director include developing Dance Class – a training initiative for young female dance music lovers. A response to a lack of female representation in electronic music, it has launched the careers of Ebony Boadu, SPORTS and Lauren Hansom. She’s also played a central role in the launch of FBi Click and FBi’s Northern Lights, which saw Middle Kids hit the stage at Iceland Airwaves Festival last year.
On her time at FBi, Gates says, “It’s been such an honour to hold a job that involves helping hundreds of Sydney’s best and brightest to do wonderful things. The station has shaped my life in a profound way, and thinking back over all the projects I’ve worked on and the people I’ve worked with, I hope I’ve been able to shape it for the better in return. Now someone else will get a go and I can’t wait to see what they do. I’m ready and excited for the next steps – mine and FBi’s”
Now in its fifteenth year, FBi Radio is an independent broadcaster dedicated to the music, arts & culture of Sydney. Playing 50% Australian music, with half of that from Sydney, FBi targets a demographic of 18-24 year-olds and broadcasts to over 460,000 listeners each month.
