CHY - Coffs FM is dedicated to the
development of self esteem, communication skills and community spirit
in its radio trainees starting at the age of 13, providing a bridge
from the sheltered school system to the employment world. More than
4000 students have completed the CHY experience with a number going
on to success in the commercial world.
CHY Coffs FM was launched in 1973 as an initiative
of Captain John Townsend from the Salvation Army. He realised the
potential success of the concept of nurturing the talents of the
youth in the local area. Many Coffs Harbour businesses donated material,
time and advice and CHY (Coffs Harbour Youth) made its first broadcast
on December 1, 1973.
Over 30 years CHY FM has developed into a
state of the art radio station - from its beginnings of a one room
set up to a fully equipped On-air studio, Training studio, Production
Studio, and offices. Technically none of this would have been possible
without dedicated and interested sponsors like TJH Systems and ADNET
Audio & Internet who have freely given their time, expertise
and donated equipment.
