End of an era, farewell KFM

Written by on August 24, 2022

After 20 years on Karangahape Rd, Te Karanga Trust made the difficult decision to close KFM radio station. Directing focus their energies on our creative youth development programs and services.

Founded in August 2002 by John Greet and Tame Iti, the station has nurtured creatives and artists young and old. It has been an inclusive safe space and localised creative community hub. So many memories shared and good friends have been made over the years.

KFM was our closest like minded community radio station, sharing many special memories with them. One of the stand outs being Base FM VS KFM show-off in 2008 at Rising Sun on Karangahape road.

Te Karanga Charitable Trust was born out of KFM and we will never forget the foundations and roots, and the organic process that got us to where we are today. We have huge admiration for the amazing people that have poured energy, volunteered and built our community over the years.

Te Karanga Charitable Trust are planning a reunion and celebration of 20 years on K road and will update everyone on there social media soon. Big shout out to the KFM community for giving there heart and soul to there 20 year legacy. Excited this new chapter in creative youth development programs and services unfold.
