Bay City Radio

Bay City Radio was a radio station in Hawke's Bay New Zealand. Bay City Radio commenced broadcasting on 1 October 1957 using the call-sign 2ZC and broadcasting on 1280 kHz AM, with the slogan Twin-City Radio, serving both Napier and Hastings. When Apple Radio commenced as a stand-alone station from the previously shared Hastings studio, the station was re-branded as Bay City Radio 2ZC. These stations were operated by the New Zealand Broadcasting Corporation which later became known as Radio New Zealand in 1975. In December 1981 a fire started in one of the studios causing considerable damage. The whole top floor of the Dalgety building (Broadcasting House) was then completely refurbished and modernized with state-of-the-art equipment.

In 1993 Bay City Radio joined the Classic Hits network and became known as Classic Hits Bay City Radio. In 1994, the station moved to 89.5FM and became Classic Hits 89FM Bay City Radio. Later the AM frequency would be used to broadcast Newstalk ZB into the Hawke's Bay region. Out of the times of 6-10am Monday to Saturday, the station is networked from Auckland.

The station is now on air as Classic Hits 89-5 and is still the most listened to local radio station. Local breakfast Monday to Friday is hosted by Martin Good and Sarah Van Der Kley. Annette Lunn reads local news. Neil Dunn hosts the Saturday breakfast show.

Famous quotes containing the words radio, bay and/or city:

    from above, thin squeaks of radio static,
    The captured fume of space foams in our ears—
    Hart Crane (1899–1932)

    Three miles long and two streets wide, the town curls around the bay ... a gaudy run with Mediterranean splashes of color, crowded steep-pitched roofs, fishing piers and fishing boats whose stench of mackerel and gasoline is as aphrodisiac to the sensuous nose as the clean bar-whisky smell of a nightclub where call girls congregate.
    Norman Mailer (b. 1923)

    ‘Society’ in America means all the honest, kindly-mannered, pleasant- voiced women, and all the good, brave, unassuming men, between the Atlantic and the Pacific. Each of these has a free pass in every city and village, ‘good for this generation only,’ and it depends on each to make use of this pass or not as it may happen to suit his or her fancy.
    Henry Brooks Adams (1838–1918)
