History

Originally set up by Tasmanian University broadcasters, Edge Radio began as a partnership between youth community representatives, media practitioners, the University of Tasmania (UTas) and the local student union the Tasmania University Union(TUU). In the Attempt to get a permanent license the new organisation separated its governance structure from UTas and the TUU in order to ensure that it was seen as independent.

Tasmanian Youth Broadcasters Inc. was awarded a broadcasting licence after a four week trial period in August 2002. The licence was for a community radio station that serviced the youth of Hobart. The station was named Edge Radio and was launched by Machine Gun Fellatio's Chit Chat in February 2003. The station had immediate success, being awarded the Community Radio Station of the Year in its first year of broadcasting by the CBAA.
