Funding future of community radio
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.
