RADIO STATIONS - BRIDGE FM 91.7 & THE BEAT 88.1
Ōpōtiki is surrounded by 2 rivers. The Waioweka & Otara rivers. They
both have bridges that are the main access ways into our community. This was the main reasoning for naming the station 'Bridge FM' - it represents us!
The station plays music from the 50's all the way through to today. I guess you could say they 'bridge' all era's of music together.
Bridge FM has a huge focus on the community and looks to be the voice of the town to keep people up with events and happenings each & every day.
This station provides music for the young and the young at heart. Hip Hop, R&B and Reggae, it's music that takes you back to your childhood, growing up listening to 2Pac and Biggie, right through to todays music, Beyonce, Drake and Chris Brown etc..
Music all day everyday to keep you going, with community messages thrown in between to give you that local feel!
