103.9 Life FM/Gippsland, Victoria AUS  is celebrating 20 years broadcasting positive, uplifting music and messages of hope. Life FM also features locally-made programs such as Gippsland Perspective, which covers local news and events, Light Up Latrobe and Make Gippsland Great Again.

Deb Bye is the person who got Life FM on the air. Deb says she was motivated by a desire to give the Christian community a place in Gippsland radio which hadn’t previously existed.

“In 1999, when I started doing deputations to tell people we wanted to start a radio station, I met a lady in South Gippsland, who said, “I’ve been praying for Christian radio in Gippsland for 20 years”. For me, that was like a rubber stamp, I was on the right track,” Deb said.
