Mt Perry FM

Central and North Burnett Times - - NEWS -

MT PERRY may have its own com­mu­nity FM ra­dio sta­tion by mid-year.

Spokesman Terry Run­dell said a five-year com­mu­nity ra­dio li­cence was on hold with the Aus­tralian Com­mu­ni­ca­tions and Me­dia Author­ity, pending the out­come of a grant to buy broad­cast equip­ment.

“We could be on air within the month or six weeks of ob­tain­ing the grant (if suc­cess­ful), and we would need to do a lot of testing (of equip­ment) be­fore go­ing ahead,” he said.

“The whole idea was to get out to the peo­ple who were iso­lated be­tween Mt Perry and Bund­aberg who have no ra­dio, TV or mo­bile.

“We would also do a ‘women in iso­la­tion’ pro­gram for women on cat­tle sta­tions, and in­dige­nous pro­grams.”

Those in­ter­ested in spon­sor­ing pro­grams or vol­un­teer­ing should email mt­perry.broad­cast­ers@gmail.com.
