At Power FM Ballarat, being ‘Leaders in Local’ isn’t just a statement, it’s about living in and contributing to our community.

Either through sponsoring events or being involved in major community initiatives. Power FM understands Ballarat.

Here are some things we’ve been up to recently:

The Push-Up Challenge

In June, Power FM Brekky host Maddie and the team are undertaking The Push Up Challenge in a Push for Better Mental Health.

The goal is 3,318 push-ups in 25 days, that’s the number of Australians that died by suicide in 2019. Join the challenge or sponsor us and help raise funds for Headspace Ballarat.

Shepp Cannery Surplus Grocery Grab

Another great local collaboration, working with Shepp Cannery Surplus the team re-imagined a classic idea in a Grocery Grab and delivered a fantastic promotion combining radio, digital, social and location activity to meet the client’s goals and was a load of fun for our listeners.

Commerce Ballarat Biznet Breakfast

Some of the Power FM Ballarat team attended the monthly Commerce Ballarat Biznet Breakfast.

It’s one of the longest-running networking opportunities in Ballarat and we are proud to continue our 20+ year partnership.

The Power FM Slumber Party

On World Sleep Day and we have worked with Forty Winks Ballarat to create a major tactic, “The Power FM Slumber Party”.

Commencing with a brekky Broadcast, four listeners climbed into bed for the day and undertook hourly challenges in order to win a $4,500 bedding package.

The public was also encouraged to come in and vote for the one wearing the best PJ’s. This was backed with hourly live crosses to an announcer in store along with social posts.

We've rounded up the 10 finalists and now it's time to vote.

Lydiard St Petition

On May 30, 2020, a train travelling twice the speed limit destroyed the historic railway crossing gates in Lydiard Street, Ballarat.

This vital thoroughfare has remained closed for nine months with no sign of action to have it repaired and reopened. Power FM launched a petition to get Lydiard Street reopened ASAP.
