Embr 96.1 is Christchurch's newest radio station! Full of alternative pop, fresh air and throwbacks, there'll be no need to search Spotify for your music fix. Relevant and motivating are two words that describe Embr perfectly. But don't just take our word for it, find out for yourself.

The annual audio evolution of 96.1FM is a Canterbury tradition. For decades now, every year the students of the New Zealand Broadcasting school create, launch and operate a limited edition radio station. Chosen by top industry professionals for its potential to cut through the Christchurch radio scene, this year it’s Embr.

Embr is designed to appeal to those who lead independent lifestyles, are socially active and open minded, interested in local issues and events, and find joy in going out with friends, experiencing Christchurch, travelling and building their career.
