Hot Tomato Launches Hot Tomato Gold and CADA 

The Hot Tomato Broadcasting Company has launched Hot Tomato Gold and CADA via DAB+ radio on the Gold Coast, as well as through the iHeart radio app. Gold Coasters will also be able to listen to 1029 Hot Tomato through their DAB+ radio, waking up with Galey, Emily Jade & Christo for Breakfast and driving home with Moyra and Big Trev weekday afternoons. 



Hot Tomato Gold is a new format that will play the Gold Coast’s Greatest Hits from the 60’s to 90’s, putting the Gold back on the Gold Coast. 

Hip Hop and R&B lovers can get their fix on CADA, ARN’s new national youth network.

There will also be an additional locally programed DAB+ radio service available in the coming weeks, once it is in season. 





1029 Hot Tomato Content Director Brendon Dangar said:  “We haven’t just done a cut n paste with our DAB+ offering on the Gold Coast. We’ve already created Hot Tomato Gold to cater for the top end demographic of Hot Tomato listeners and the audience that have nowhere to go after Gold FM disappeared. The music is fantastic and the imaging is Gold Coast as. The station we are currently working on at the moment and hope to launch in the next few weeks is very exciting and will be ready for the picking soon.



1029 Hot Tomato General Manager, Graham Miles said: “Being 100% Gold Coast, we are delighted to be able to offer 1029 Hot Tomato on the DAB+ spectrum as well as adding two new locally produced formats being Hot Tomato Gold and one to be announced soon. The Gold Coast is the sixth largest city, and these new services will present another option for our advertising partners to connect with our audiences.”
