Flava’s Content Director, Christian Boston says interest in the station has been high from fans.

“We’ve had so much demand to get Flava into everywhere from Dunedin to the Gold Coast. We’ve even had offers from people to put transmitters on their houses, so it’s great to be able expand the network. It was the number one station with the teens in two out of its three surveyed markets last year, so to be able to have it in eight locations this year is a very exciting expansion for us.”

Boston says Flava really resonates with 18-39 year old market.

“With our launch of Flava into Wellington and Dunedin it will enable us to capitalise on the ever growing urban audience and further raise TRN’s overall fresh and funky youth audience,” says Boston.

“I arrived grudgingly into Wellington in 1990 – I admit it, I was Auckland hard! I left Wellington in 2002, a blubbering emotional, artistic, Hurricanes for life mess! It’s the best to be back via the radio waves into Wellington. It’s a city that blows the word ‘normal’ away, literally!” says Fane.
