If you travel to or from Tasmania by ferry on the Spirit of Tasmania, you’ll experience the vibrant city of Devonport on the North West Coast.
The city is home to two distinctly different radio formats - 7AD and SeaFM Devonport - with a service area covering more than 74,000 people.
Both stations are 100% invested in their community and year after year have sponsored local charities, sporting clubs and community groups.
This includes the Devonport Regatta, The Jazz Festival, The Rotary Club Kite Festival, Relay for Life, The Devonport Motor Show, the Food and Wine Festival, SteamFest and Mural Fest.
In 2019 their annual Koinz for Kidz Appeal raised a record-breaking $41,443.40 for the Cancer Council to help kids with cancer and their families on the North West Coast.
And in February 2020, the stations worked with the local council and businesses to put on a bushfire fundraiser concert for those affected on the mainland, donated via the Salvation Army. The concert saw Tassie heroes The Wolfe Brothers play supported by local musicians.
The stations also support individuals in the community, including promotions that recognise the achievements of young people and showcasing musicians by inviting them to perform live in the studio each Friday.
And with a commitment to supporting hyper local, both stations have introduced more local and regional news in 2021 and 7AD has strengthened its sports coverage, adding The Sideline View alongside its successful Saturday Sport show.
Loving Life on the Coast
From the mountains, to the beaches, the clean air and its beautiful lakes, Tasmania's North West coast is an incredible place to live! SeaFM Devonport and 7AD live and breathe this mantra of 'loving life on the coast' every day and it's easy to see why!
