91.3 SportFM (ACMA callsign: 6WSM) is an Australian sport-formatted community radio station in Western Australia. Established in 2003, the station broadcasts in the Perth Metro area and to the City of Fremantle, Cockburn, and Melville areas,[2] from studios in Hamilton Hill alongside Radio Fremantle.

History

The station first began test broadcasts in 2003, under a Temporary Community Broadcasting Licence (TCBL) timeshared with Capital Radio, now Capital 101.7FM.[2] Following the allocation of the 90.5FM frequency to Capital, and another licence to Noongar Radio on 100.9FM, the station ceased transmission.

Following further test transmissions on 101.7 FM, the station secured a full-time community licence for the Fremantle RA1 area, also served by Radio Fremantle. The station launched at 12:00 am on 2 February 2010.[2]

Licence breaches

As a temporary broadcaster, the Australian Communications and Media Authority found it breached the Broadcasting Services Act 1992 by "broadcasting advertisements" and by "exceeding the hourly sponsorship limit of five minutes" in a broadcast of The Run Home sourced from 1116 SEN. The programme is no longer carried on the station.[3]

Programming

The programming in the station including Australian Baseball League: Perth Heat and the West Australian Football League. As well as news updates sourced as Southern Cross Austereo on weekdays from 6am to 6pm.
