Due to flooding WowFM is currently off the air

A recent flooding event has caused extensive damage to the building that houses WowFM. Due to this we are currently off the air and will not be back on air until early January. WowFM management and presenters apologise for this break in transmission.

Sponsorship News

WowFM would like to welcome two new sponsors, namely ‘Budget Camping’ and ‘Helloworld Travel’ to our sponsorship list.

Our sponsors are showing that they have confidence in WowFM and they believe that they can reach a substantial audience to promote their products through their sponsorship with WowFM.

This can be seen with ‘Cafe Cherry Beans’ re-signing for another 12 months, making it a successful partnership for the past 3 years. When re-signing ‘Cafe Cherry Beans’ said that a number of their clients mentioned WowFM when making their first visit.

NEMBC

For 2017, WowFM 100.7 nominated four of their members Malama Psarianos, Joe Borg, Majid Piracha and Daisy Tharin from the Ethnic Presenters as their delegation to NEMBC (The National Ethnic and Multicultural Broadcasting Council) where for the very first time one of our WowFM 100.7 Ambassador’s Majid Piracha was being nominated and elected on the NEMBC Executive Committee.

Majid Piracha with his over 25 years old Multicultural Radio show “New Home New Light” on WOW-FM 100.7 finds it to be a very humbling experience and is overwhelmed while also congratulating and thanking all at WOW-FM 100.7 for their support towards his successful nomination at NEMBC and wishes everyone a very happy, healthy, safe and joyful Merry Christmas and Seasons Greetings.

Si Cranstoun Concert

On Friday Night the 3rd of November WowFM presenters and listeners enjoyed a lively night’s entertainment at the Blacktown Workers Club as part of an arrangement with our sponsor (Alan Mann Productions).

Wowfm Dinner 09We were invited to give away 25 double passes to our listeners along with 20 double passes to WOW-FM presenters. The star of the evening was Si Cranstoun who began his career as a busker in London, and finally hitting the big time with a million-pound recording contract. He started writing his own songs and performing when he was 16 and for years he struggled to make ends meet as he played on London’s streets.

At one time, Prime Minister Tony Blair when passing by threw 30p into his hat which was laying on the side walk beside him. But success evaded him until 2013 when he finally landed a breakthrough deal with music giants Warner.

WowFM 100.7 Christmas Dinner: A Success

On Wednesday November 29 WOW-FM 100.7 hosted a Christmas dinner at the Penrith RSL Star Buffet courtesy of Majid Piracha.

Presenters got to catch up or meet other presenters they haven’t met before, thus also enjoying a Buffet meal. A job well done to Majid Piracha for organising it.
