About Us

Compass FM 104.9 is the community radio station for North Canterbury, covering the Waimakariri and Hurunui districts. Compass FM broadcasts from our Rangiora Studios, bringing you a wide range of programmes to a broad audience.

Compass FM is a community station by, for and about the communities of North Canterbury.

Compass FM is operated by the North Canterbury Radio Trust, a charitable trust established in 2008 to bring community access broadcasting to the Waimakariri and Hurunui districts of Canterbury — from Kaiapoi in the south, and Oxford in the west to Hanmer Springs, and eventually Cheviot and points north. The NCRT was awarded a license to broadcast in August 2008, has been actively fundraising for the project ever since.
