George FM is an Auckland dance music radio station, owned and operated by MediaWorks from Ponsonby Road headquarters and relayed on Freeview and radio frequencies around New Zealand. Its seventy-five regular presenters and additional guest presenters host the station's twenty four hour mix of house, breaks, drum and bass, dubstep, electro, soul, downbeat, jazz, funk, indie electronica, hip-hop and other dance and electronica music.
The network was set up as a volunteer-run low power station based in a Grey Lynn spare bedroom in 1998. It became a commercial station with paid staff by 2003, began to be relayed to other centres in subsequent years, became a Freeview station on 1 May 2008 and was bought out by MediaWorks on 16 February 2009. It continues to retain a laid-back style: news is limited to informal Auckland news, weather, traffic and surf reports hourly during breakfast and drive shows and the choice of music and presenting style is entirely that of programme hosts.
George Breakfast is hosted by Clarke Gayford and Aroha Harawira.
Regular Friday feature 'Damn! I Wish I Was Your Cover' invites Kiwi artists to cover top George FM hits. The cover is then recorded to be played on-air with an accompanying music video. The segment has featured Ruby Frost covering Disclosure's White Noise, Tahuna Breaks covering Daft Punk's Get Lucky, Anna Coddington covering Major Lazer's Get Free, Six60 covering Rudimental's Feel The Love, Tali covering Kendrick Lamar's Swimming Pools, and Lips covering Kavinsky's Nightcall.
George Mornings are currently hosted by station music director Dean Campbell. Key To The Groove with Bevan Keys airs on Friday mornings.
The George Selectah afternoon programme is hosted by Australian-born DJ Dan Aux. The Shapeshifter Selectah with Sambora and P Diggs airs on Fridays.
George Drive is hosted by station co-founder Thane Kirby and newsreader Kara Rickard. Friday Drive with Sam Hill & Thane Kirby airs on Fridays.
