Positively Te Aroha - Community Radio

The best music mix and community news

Radio Te Aroha is YOUR community radio station broadcasting on 88FM locally and online. Radio Te Aroha is owned and operated by the Te Aroha Dramatic Society which in turn, owns and operates the Te Aroha Little Theatre in Honi St, Te Aroha. The Society is both an incorporated society and a registered charity and has been established in Te Aroha for over 70 years. First and foremost, the station is run primarily to provide free advertising for community groups, not-for-profits, charities, clubs, schools, churches and their events as well as local employers advertising jobs and job-seekers looking for work. Having a garage sale? We advertise these for free too! All monies raised through on-air commercial advertising supports not only our local theatre but also local community groups and events by enabling them to advertise on the radio for free. We offer the cheapest radio commercial rates in New Zealand. We can tailor-make radio ads and get them on-air for just NZ$100 for a WHOLE YEAR. Interested? Just email us at or call us on (+64) 022 1564708. We not only broadcast worldwide over the internet via our website player in 128kps digital stereo but also locally in Te Aroha on 88FM if you're within a 5km to 8km radius of downtown Te Aroha. We also partner with Waikato Civil Defence the NZ Met Service and our local Red Cross Branch and broadcast alerts received about local storms, high winds, earthquakes, floods, Covid-19, landslides, biosecurity and wildfires in our region. Radio Te Aroha is run completely by volunteers who believe in the promotion of our town as a great place to live and a wonderful tourist destination and publicising community groups and their activities, local businesses and local music artists.
