Today in our 'Leaders in Local' series, we visit bay 93.9, Geelong's feel-good station!
On weekdays you can hear The Morning Crew with Mark & Milly from 6 am, Craig From 10 am & Daryl & Roxie with The Catch Up from 3 pm. Saturday from 8 am it's the Property Guide with Dave Ferguson, and from 1 pm get your local sports info in The Sideline View with Kevin Hillier.
The renowned bay 93.9 Newsroom is Geelong's trusted source of quality local news. On-air and online at bay939.com.au.
Here are some of the things the bay 93.9 crew have been up to:
$5000 Mystery Shopper
Craig Meddings and Alex the Seal surprised Donna live on-air with a $5,000 Harvey Norman Corio and Waurn Ponds shopping spree as The Morning Crew's Mystery Shopper winner.
It's not every morning a giant seal with giant cheque lands on your doorstep!
Off Your Back
bay 93.9 and The Salvation Army want people to take their pre-loved coats to any drop off location so they can be re-distributed to the homeless in Geelong and around Victoria.
bay 93.9 and Geelong Broadcasters General Manager Andy Mathers has jumped on board as an ambassador for Dry July.
He's flying the flag for the Barwon Health Foundation and raising money for the Andrew Love Cancer Centre.
Live From Market Square
bay 93.9 was live with Craig Meddings for Market Square's Massive One Day Sale doing raffles every hour.
It's so good to be out in the community again.
Mark Hyland's 25 Year Anniversary
On June 11, 1996, Mark Hyland started with Geelong Broadcasters.
Congratulations on 25 years Mark, what an achievement. A proud, local voice, waking up Geelong every weekday at 6 am with Milly on The Morning Crew.
A massive thank you on behalf of Geelong Broadcasters and Grant Broadcasters.
Local Business Shout-Outs
As we went back into restrictions once again, bay 93.9 was there, ready to give a shout out to local businesses.
Give Where You Live
Give Where You Live raise valuable funds for our Geelong community, so bay 93.9 were proud to help people dig deep for our fellow residents of Geelong who are doing it tough!
Barwon Health Giving Weekend
bay 93.9 went live on the streets of Geelong to help the The Barwon Health Foundation's Giving Weekend.
It was Geelong's chance to say a big "thank you" to our amazing local health service in Geelong.
Geelong Chamber of Commerce "After Five"
We broadcasted live from GMHBA Stadium as part of The Geelong Chamber of Commerce "After Five" and celebrating business in Geelong!
It was the first 'After Five' since February last year, and it was great to see Geelong business represent. Many thanks to The Geelong Cats and Higher Mark for hosting.
The Push Up Challenge
Well done Daryl and Bewsie for being part of The Push Up Challenge and raising money for mental health services.
The Vocal Local Quiz
There's nothing like having your local knowledge tested for a shot at a great prize.
A lot of local knowledge means hilarious local humour, like Milly's mum spotting Gary Ablett everywhere she went.
Supporting Local Musicians
Most Fridays, The Catch Up's Daryl & Roxie can be heard putting a local musician, like Taylor Henderson, through their paces in Catch Up Karaoke.
Supporting Local Artists Like Norm Stanley
Thanks for joining us on The Catch Up Norm and congratulations being shortlisted for the 2021 Geelong Contemporary Art Prize.
