Fund­ing fu­ture of com­mu­nity ra­dio

Melville Times - - What's On -

PREMIER Mark McGowan vis­ited RTRFM staff and vol­un­teers re­cently as part of a $120,000 fund­ing han­dover.

Mr McGowan toured the sta­tion and talked with staff about the fu­ture of com­mu­nity ra­dio.

The fund­ing is a big boost for the com­mu­nity sta­tion, with gen­eral man­ager Stu­art MacLeod re­veal­ing in March that RTR was hit hard by a “mas­sive hike” in li­cens­ing fees.

It took to the air in 1977 at UWA and moved to its current Beaufort Street lo­ca­tion in 2005.
