What a Beautiful place we live in

We start back in the office next Monday 11th, tune in for more great hits from the 60’s to 90’s from our Rangiora based studios.
New direction at Compass FM
Compass FM’s new station manager Richard Green.
Experienced broadcaster Richard Green has taken over as station manager at North Canterbury’s Compass FM.
Green comes in for Mike Le Petit who had been the station manager since the Rangiora-based station launched in 2011. He had previously worked with Newstalk ZB in Auckland and More FM in Christchurch, where he hired Green.
Almost 20 years to the day he has hired Green again. More FM was Green’s first job in radio in Christchurch and he has since worked for Newstalk ZB, Classic Hits and was a tutor at Aoraki Polytech for 10 years – including when the course was relocated to Rangiora following the earthquakes.
As well as being the station manager, Green will continue his work with Newstalk ZB in various voice-over roles and as a weather commentator.
His main focus will be Compass FM and taking the station to ‘‘the next level’’ by taking it back to its roots.
‘‘Radio how it was. Serving the community and putting the people first,’’ Green said.
Under Green, the station will look to be informative at a local level while playing some classic tunes.
The first big change will be a seamless one when the station is fitted with a new on-air system before the end of the year.
The station has around 32 staff, some full time and others contributing on a casual basis.
