Kalgoorlie: 6KG

Kalgoorlie is the hub of Western Australia’s Goldfields region, located around 600 kilometres east of Perth with a population of around 30,000. 

6KG was opened in Kalgoorlie in 1931.  It was the first radio station in the region with ABC’s local station, 6GF, opening in 1936.

By 1995, 6KG had adopted the Radio West branding as part of a network of AM radio stations across Western Australia.

6KG, still part of the Radio West network, is now owned by Macquarie Southern Cross Media which also operates a sister FM station in Kalgoorlie, Hot 97.9 FM (call-sign: 6KAR)
