According to the radio station’s website, it took 20 years to obtain a “broadcast license for Adelaide’s only Christian radio station.” 1079 Life has been on the air full-time since October 1993.
1079 Life was originally known as “Alta Mira FM,” but was later renamed “Life FM.” Life FM rebranded and changed its name to “1079 Life” in September 2016, dropping the FM in the title to reflect the emergence of digital radio, not just the FM band.
The station has been an incubator for local media talent in Adelaide, most notably Brenton Ragless, who began with 1079 Life and then moved to the Nine Network where he now reads the news.
Adelaide’s Good Taste Radio is the station’s motto. In addition to Adult Contemporary and Christian music, 1079 Life broadcasts news, sports, music, and talk shows.
In the winter, 1079 Life usually broadcasts a SANFL football match on Saturday and Sunday afternoons. The station has received three SANFL Media Awards, including “Best Commentary” in 2004 and 2008, as well as “Best Radio Interview” in 2007. From 6 p.m. on weeknights, 1079 Life will also simulcast Nine News.
