Radio stations 2GB, 3AW, 4BC, and 6PR will ramp up local content with new traffic reports every 10 minutes in the key Breakfast and Drive shifts.
The move is part of Nine Radio’s strategy of “live and local”.
Nine Radio’s head of content, Greg Byrnes, said: “Nine Radio is the only radio network with local traffic reporters in each market, with deep knowledge of their city’s traffic and accident blackspots, offering the best advice during the commuter rush about how to avoid any traffic snarls. As our biggest cities roar back to life, our listeners will now be getting updates every 10 minutes.”

Religious radio station Radio Eli, broadcast on a medium-wave frequency of 1035 kHz via a transmitter (100 kW) in Estonian Kavastu, has been forced to reduce its broadcast hours since mid-September. Now programs in Russian are broadcast from 17.00 to 01.00 Moscow time. Earlier, Radio Eli had a morning broadcast on 1035 kHz from 06.00-10.00 Moscow time.
“Due to the sharp rise in the price of electricity by 4 times, we were forced to significantly cut broadcasting at medium frequencies of 1035 KHz. Now you can listen to us on medium frequencies only from 18.00–00.00. We are praying and looking for new funding channels to continue this ministry, ”the radio station said on its VKontakte page.
A 200 kW transmitter for broadcasting Radio Eli was installed in Kavastu (Estonia) in May 2010. The broadcasting radius is from 500 to 2000 km, which allows you to reach the Baltic States, north-west of Russia, the entire territory of Belarus and the northern part of Ukraine.
