The Breeze FM to Launch Into Auckland

The Breeze FM to Launch Into Auckland

RadioWorks has confirmed that The Breeze radio station will launch into the Auckland market on Monday, June 12, 2006.

The Breeze will broadcast on the full powered 93.4 frequency in Auckland, which was previously the broadcast platform held by Solid Gold FM.

On May 28, Solid Gold FM will move to 93.8fm, Kiwi FM’s previous broadcast frequency.

The frequency change will allow RadioWorks to pursue the option of providing a broadcast service which gives full Auckland coverage by synchronising Solid Gold on 93.8 in Auckland and the Waikato.

Brent Impey, CanWest MediaWorks CEO, comments: “As things currently stand, with different radio stations on 93.8 FM in Auckland and the Waikato, we are only able to broadcast on 93.8FM at a lower power, which leaves some areas of Auckland unable to receive the signal. This move may give us the option to provide a full coverage service to our listeners.”
