History of 3Way
In 1985 an association known as Community Radio Endeavour Warrnambool (CREW) was formed. The purposes of the Association were documented in the “proposed statement of purpose”.
To obtain a public radio broadcasting licence for the Warrnambool area and establish a broadcasting station to carry out the terms of such a licence
To seek to involve all persons in Warrnambool and district in all aspects of the operation of such a station
To attempt to provide through such a station programming which caters for interests not provided for by national or commercial stations in Warrnambool and district.
Following many “test” broadcasts, a licence was granted in September 1990. 24 hour broadcasting commenced with over 100 volunteers. The station ID 3WAY (standing for Warrnambool And You) was adopted.
