Finding a New Home for Yass FM

Yass FM is still hunting for a new permanent location after the proposed new site for their new studios at the Yass Community Centre has been deemed unsuitable. 

Following meticulous planning and fundraising efforts, a long-term site adjacent to the Men’s Shed at the Community Centre was identified, but despite good initial progress, environmental contamination issues at the old servo site have halted construction plans.

Yass FM was forced to leave their original established studios at the Waterworks building on Cooks Hill Road in 2021 after the building was deemed unsafe. The Council agreed to let the local community radio station rent the Pool House building at Victoria Park as a temporary measure, but now, due to the proposed demolition of this building due to the new heated pool plans in Victoria Park, Yass FM has been on the hunt for a new permanent location.

Geoff Frost, President of Yass FM said: ‘we are disappointed that all the work completed so far at the Men’s Shed has meant that we are not able to proceed with the build, but we are now on the hunt for an alternative and better location. We are very grateful to Council for it’s co-operation to date with finding the station a long-term home and we are putting forward some new proposals to them in the next Council Meeting.’ 

Options for Yass FM’s new home could be staying where they are or relocating to other under-utilised sites in Victoria Park.  Geoff continued: ‘we have been overwhelmed by the public support for our hunt for a new home with kind offers of support from local businesses and financial donations from our listeners. We remain determined to find a permanent location, and will continue to work to find a solution. 

‘Victoria Park is a great location, close the centre of town, easy access and is a good technical solution as it provides a direct link to the station’s transmitter on Mt Manton.  In the meantime, we will continue to operate from the Pool House, and we await a favourable decision about our new home from the next Council Meeting to ensures the station's continuity and how our new location will benefit the wider community.’

The hunt for a new home means that Yass FM 100.3 is going from strength to strength, and we continue to broadcast a wide range of talk and music shows to the local Yass Valley community via 100.3 FM radio, digital online, phone apps or podcasts.  Our daily reports include local community news, what’s on guides, police updates and council news. If you are interested in becoming a volunteer, radio presenter or business sponsor, we would love to hear from you and we can be contacted via
