This week marked a milestone for Hit103.5 Cairns with the station celebrating its 25th birthday. Since first launching on the airwaves back in 1994 as Hot FM, the station renamed under the Hit Network brand to Hit103.5 in 2016.
Celebrating the past 25 years, Hit103.5’s breakfast team Carly & Seamus broadcast live from Cairns Esplanade in front of the Reef Eye. Visitors were treated free breakfast provided by McDonald’s and coffee and cake thanks to Jackley’s Bakehouse.
Hit103.5 turned the Reef Eye into the world’s biggest game of Wheel of Fortune. Listeners had the chance to spin the wheel and win a range of different prizes throughout the morning.
SCA Cairns general manager Richard King said: “Hit103.5 is proud to be celebrating 25 fantastic years in Cairns. For a quarter of a decade now we have connected with the people of Cairns, providing entertainment, laughs and music. We have formed long standing relationships with local businesses and supported events, festivals and charity fundraisers.
“We would like to thank our loyal listeners for tuning in and helping to make Hit103.5 the station it is today. We have had a huge amount of fun, and we can’t wait for the next 25 years to be just as good.”
