About ZZZ FM

Triple Z (call sign: 2ZZZ) is a commercial radio station covering New South Wales’ Far North Coast, and is part of the Broadcast Operations Group. The station targets the 18-39 market with a mostly top 40 hits format, though in networking hours the format shifts to a more adult contemporary mix.

We began broadcasting on January 1, 1994, from its Goonellabah studios. First announcer on air was Dave Williams, followed by Vashti Stewart, Neil Marks & Mike O’Reilly. The first song played on air was “The Heat Is On” by Glenn Frey.

Triple Z is live 6am to 5pm weekdays and 6am to 12pm weekends, switching to a network feed outside these hours.
