Radio Kidnappers 1431 AM and 104.7 FM – Hastings

Radio Kidnappers has been the official Access Station in Hawkes Bay since 1995. Our two frequencies – 104.7 FM and 1431 AM – reach from Wairoa to Waipukurau.

Radio Kidnappers recognizes that communication is the thread that connects all of us together and believes that cultural diversity is a treasure to be nourished. Therefore our mission is to engender a community which values tolerance, respect and appreciation for all members of the human family. That’s why we are known as The Voice of Hawkes Bay! We offer EVERYONE – women, children, minority groups, the disabled, etc. – an opportunity to present their unique message on air. Kidnappers has about a hundred different programmes on air with something for absolutely everyone.
