Triple Y’s history has extended over 30 years now. Triple Y started in 1986/1987 and started off as Triple Y when we began test transmissions, later and for many years Triple was known on air as “5YYY” and only recently have we reverted back to our original name of Triple Y on the 1st of December 2017.
Triple Y was well known through the 90’s for our famous logo and still a lot of people can recognize the mascot or logo Effram the lizard that was drawn by a local artists *Name* Handly.
