Brisbane ‘s Youth Community Radio Station

Switch Brisbane would like to say farewell to 4KQ and welcome listeners to “switch” up to 1197AM as Brisbane’s only remaining live and local AM music station.

Switch Brisbane is run 100% by our volunteer crew. We’re always looking for motivated people to join us.

Becoming a member is the ultimate way to show your support and get involved with the organisation behind the radio station.

We like to help community groups just like us, that’s why we have the Community Switch. Registered charities and not-for-profit groups are able to promote their events and services in Brisbane by sending your details to the Community Switch and we will promote it on-air.

Sponsoring Switch Brisbane is easy and more cost effective than commercial radio.
Your message gets heard!
We only are allowed 5 minutes of sponsorship each hour. Your spot won’t get lost in a sea of noise.
We offer special pricing contact our office on (07) 3221 0197 or email info@switchbrisbane.com.au
