Under the leadership of Chris Wright, Lime FM in Mount Gambier, South Australia is undergoing a transformation in 2023. The station is returning to its Christian roots and introducing a hybrid format.

Chris Wright, who has had an extensive career in radio since the 1980s, has taken on the role of station manager. He began his career as a RAAF Radio presenter while stationed in Butterworth, Malaysia. Since then, he has worked with various radio stations including 8 Top FM (Territory FM), 97.7 in Darwin, and RHEMA FM in Mount Gambier, where he spent a decade hosting Breakfast and presenting an interview-based talk show.

The new format of Lime FM will incorporate elements of both secular and Christian programming. This return to the station’s Christian roots is a significant step for Lime FM, and Chris Wright’s leadership will undoubtedly be instrumental in guiding the station through this transition.

The Pat Boone Show has been added to on air line-up at KMKZ/Ft Collins, CO (93.5 FM Pirate Radio). The one-hour contemporary Christian music program has been airing nationwide for more than four decades, and is hosted by the renowned singer and actor, Pat Boone. The show showcases the music of the most popular Christian artists of today, with occasional interviews of some of them by Pat. 

93.5FM Pirate Radio is a Christian based radio station and is locally owned and operated that highlights the hits from the 50’s, 60’s, soft rock 70’s and 80’s.
