Max FM was a radio station run by Wintec on the 107.1 FM frequency. The station was founded as The Revolution in early 2004 by Greg Adam, with help from Aaron Maisey, Bart Fine and James Raffin.
In 2005 Max Christoffersen, a staff member at Wintec who had previously managed and established Contact 89FM, re-established The Revolution as Max FM. The station began teaching an NZQA approved National certificate programme in 2007 for students aiming to enter broadcasting.
Max FM became Hamilton's first student station to web-cast and provide total listener interactivity through the station's playlist being available to listeners on the www.maxfm.co.nz website.
Max-FM stopped broadcasting in 2011 and was rebranded as The Yak FM.
