2019 marks 30 years of NEWFM and to celebrate The NOVOS – Jade, Matty & Krivo are embarking on a 30 hour Marathon on-air .. No Stopping :: No Sleeping!
Newcastle first got its taste of Commercial FM Radio on 105.3FM when NEWFM exploded onto the air accompanied by a blast of pyrotechnics that lit up the night and 200,000 strong revellers that attended the Skynova spectacular on the Foreshore!
A cool league of on-air announcers have commanded the airwaves over the past three decades including John Paul Young, Garth Russell, Steve Graham, Matty White (Ch10), Steve St John, Kim Bauer, Gavin Morris (NBN), commedian’s Gary Who, Debbie Spillaine and Maynard just to name a few.
It’s been a rock and roll adventure that’s also kept Newcastle and The Hunter informed with many landmark events such as the closure of the BHP Steel Works, Australia’s deadliest Earthquake, Floods, Fires, cyclonic weather events, The Newcastle Knights and Jets victorious grand final wins and the loss of much loved national sporting teams The Breakers, Hunter Pirates and Falcons.
The NOVO’s 30 Hour Marathon will pay tribute to the past and look forward to the future.
Join them as we hear from familiar voices and criss cross Newcastle loaded with prize giveaways from the NEWcrew on the streets!
