Information about the radio

With a new multi-million dollar home in West End, 98.9fm has come a long way since its humble beginnings as the “Murri Hour” on ZZZ in the 1980s.

98.9fm is owned by the Brisbane Indigenous Media Association which successfully applied for a 24-hour community radio licence allocated by the Australian Broadcasting Tribunal for the city in 1991.

On Tuesday April 6, 1993, 98.9FM was on-the-air making its mark as the first Indigenous radio station in a capital city and for its unique blend of country and Indigenous music.

Since the first broadcast the station has grown from strength to strength and today continues its strong commitment to quality broadcasting of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander music, issues and news.

98.9fm boasts a line-up of media personalities including Jamie Dunn and Steven Oliver. They’re joined by an experienced swag of presenters including Dan Rennie, Clay Cassar-Daley, Shaun Bindley, Peter Hill, and Elijah Blair.

98.9FM is part of the National Indigenous Radio Service (NIRS), a satellite network of over 120 community radio stations reaching the length and breadth of Australia. NIRS will be co-located with 98.9fm at its new premises in West End.

After 18 years at Rocklea, 98.9fm relocated to its brand new home at West End in April 2011.

Its new facility at West End features three digital and one analogue studio, state-of-the art recording studio and booth, three-camera television studio and control room, training centre, conference/meeting rooms and stylish office space. The facility is surrounded by Australian native plants and decorated with contemporary visual art works by local First Nations artists. There are also commissioned works by Laurie Nilsen whose sculptures greet visitors and Lilla Watson’s Tracks in Country backlit by multi-coloured lights takes centre stage in the foyer. Tracks in Country is also reflected in our website.
