Sun FM 106.5

Sun FM 106.5 is your local community radio station based in Whakatane – New Zealand, broadcasting from our studios in Louvain Street out to the Bay of Plenty region.

It’s today’s hits, with some characters on the radio providing you with national and local news, weather, the odd dry joke and giving you the chance to win some cool prizes.

We are excited this year to be selected as a finalist in the New Zealand radio awards as a finalist for Station of the year non surveyed and would like to thank you for supporting us.

Out and About

You’ll find our Go Explore Ocean Ford team out and about in the Eastern Bay of Plenty supporting the community and helping local projects with a whole heap of prizes and crazy antics. Make sure you get down in time to see the team the next time we’re in your area!
