For over 25yrs Vox FM 106.9, The Voice of the Illawarra, has been broadcasting in the region. Vox has a loyal listenership across the Illawarra.
Over the years it has become an integral part of the Illawarra community. The station’s broadcast area reaches from Helensburgh in the north to Gerringong in the south, and at times receives calls from listeners receiving the signal in the Blue Mountains.
Unlike most stations, Vox doesn't play the same thing 24 hours a day. We have different shows throughout the day appealing to different people. These include music programs playing hits from the 50’s, 60’s 70’s and 80’s as well as specialist music programs focusing Jazz, Blues, Folk, Australian Independent, Australian Metal, International Metal and Local Music.
It also gives the members of the Illawarra community a voice. Many of the regions local issues are debated and discussed on air. Vox FM gives local talent the opportunity to be heard and it also caters for many of the various ethnic communities that call the Illawarra home. Vox FM is proud to say it is supported by listeners from many heritages - Indigenous, Bosnian, Chilean, Croatian, Cyprian, Dutch, Filipino, German, Greek, Indian, Irish, Koori, Macedonian, Portuguese, Puka Puka, Scottish, Serbian, Slovenian, Spanish, Tongan, Turkish, African and Polish.
