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.
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.

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 Ian Calder and Tiga Bayles. They’re joined by an experienced swag of presenters including Dan Rennie, Pixie Jenkins, Shaun Bindley, Peter Hill, Hayley Belle and Karen Dorante.

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 part of the National Indigenous Radio Service (NIRS), a satellite network of over 120 community radio stations reaching the length and breadth of Australia.
