Season 2017 sees radio 3WBC 94.1 FM notch up 10 years calling VFL Football.
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, and calling the 2010 VFL Grand Final for radio 3BA in Ballarat.
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.
Tune in at 94.1 FM or listen online at www.3wbc.org.au and enjoy a comprehensive coverage of VFL Football in Season 2017.
