SCA brings back the heritage brands SAFM and B105

Monday 27 July, 2020
“We are calling the radio station the same thing you’ve been calling it for the last five years” and with that statement, B105 was back on Brisbane radio.
SCA is bringing back local heritage brands SAFM and B105 from today and adding two well-known locals to the Adelaide and Gold Coast breakfast crews.

As B105 station relaunched its name the newest team member of the breakfast show, Matt, got to achieve his dream:

Brisbane's new hit105 launches

Friday 06 March, 2015
As expected B105 has this morning come into line with SCA’s Today Network dropping its heritage branding and launching as hit105.

The move follows B105 recently marking its 25th Birthday with a reunion and a facebook page full of memories.

Hitting the reset button

Friday 06 March, 2015

It's a mouthful for announcers to get their tongues around the dual branding that still exists on B105, 2Day and Fox, since the launch of the Hit brand for SCA's Today Network.

"B105 Hit 105.3" is clumsy no matter how carefully you say it, and so is the reversal "Hit 105.3 B105."

But announcers in Brisbane may not have to worry about the dual branding too much longer.

Aus-Taylor-Day at B105

Thursday 22 January, 2015

While its unlikely Queenslanders will hear Taylor Swift in the Hottest 100 this Australia Day, they can find her on B105 as they celebrate Aus-Taylor-Day. 

The station promises to “unashamedly playing Tay Tay hits and features across the day and filling in the blank space at listeners’ parties with slip ‘n’ slides.”
