BayFM president Nyck Jeanes says that the station looks like it will maintain, and possibly increase, their subscription base, thanks to the big efforts of BayFM staff.

He says while Radiothon concluded Monday, ‘Don’t let that stop you subscribing!

‘Don’t be shy – go online to bayfm.org or call 6680 799 in office hours’.

‘Winners of prizes are drawn on-air Monday December 7 at 5pm’.

Mr Jeanes says, ‘It’s been a tough year for us all, but perhaps especially for community organisations and not-for-profits – service organisations doing the best they can for our local community. It’s also been arguably a creative year, a year of unusual solutions. BayFM has suffered a massive loss to normal income in 2020 – so as a matter of survival we got extra inventive.

‘Creative, inventive and a little crazy bold, BayFM keeps on keeping on’.
