91.9 Fresh FM was first established in Gladstone as a temporary community broadcaster in 1993 to broadcast on the weekends only. Under the name “Gladstone and District Christian Broadcasting Association Inc.”

Through the hard work and dedication of many volunteers over many years, the station broadcasted from a variety of places around Gladstone until eventually, 8 Uniting Place, Telina became a permanent home to broadcast to a district of nearly 60,000 people in the beautiful Gladstone Region.

In 2022, Fresh FM began a collaboration with YWAM Medical Ships with the goal of having a permanent outreach location in Gladstone, facilitating volunteers, community engagement and training to
strengthen Fresh FM and the wider community.
