About Us

Bumma Bippera Media 98.7FM is the first and only indigenous radio service in Cairns. Our state of the art studios are located right in the heart of Cairns at 1/143 Buchan Street.

BBM 98.7 FM is heard in the Cairns and surrounding areas. BBM 98.7FM has the potential to reach more than 150,000 listeners daily.

BBM can be heard in  Gordonvale, West to Kuranda, Atherton and Mareeba, north to Port Douglas and Mossman, east to Yarrabah via streaming, social media and program sharing.

Our radio service also extends nationally, Monday to Friday via our Talk Back program “TALK BLACK” and also a number of other programs through the National indigenous radio service and Globally via our online audio stream.

Our aim is to be the best Community Radio Station in Cairns and to involve a broad cross section of our community in delivering the service. We are proud of the fact we have volunteers, staff and members who are both indigenous and non indigenous people.
