Season 2018 sees radio 3WBC 94.1 FM entering their 11th year calling VFL Football. The round 5 match between Box Hill Hawks and Sandringham will be acknowledged as their 200th game of VFL broadcasting.
In season 2008 the radio station called Box Hill Hawks home games in their first year and since 2009 the commentary team have called all Box Hill Hawks games both home and away.
It was 2009 that saw the radio station win a national award from the Community Broadcasting Association of Australia (CBAA) for excellence in sport broadcasting.
Other highlights were calling the first ever Gold Coast Suns game in their inaugural year in the VFL in 2010, calling the EJ Whitten Legends game for 4 years, calling the 2010 VFL Grand Final for radio 3BA in Ballarat and being the only radio broadcaster to cover the SANFL vs VFL game live from Adelaide Oval in 2016.
3WBC has always called Box Hill Hawks games due to the location on the radio station (Box Hill) and the station’s charter is to provide predominantly for the Melbourne areas of Whitehorse and Boroondara both Box Hill and Hawthorn heartland. Having said this, 3WBC does stream online and the signal is strong throughout the metropolitan area.
The 3WBC Broadcast always starts 1-hour prior to the start of the game with interviews and previews.
