The Committee of Alpine Radio is pleased to announce that your local community radio station is a finalist in the Community Broadcasting Association of Australia (CBAA) 2019 awards to be presented at the CBAA Conference in Melbourne on Saturday 26th October. Yes, Alpine Radio is a finalist in the category of Excellence in Technical Services, recognising the contribution made by our fantastic technicians over the years, Rob O'Connor, Dick Puttyfoot and Ken Halse. There are four stations nominated as finalists in this category so we will have some stiff competition, and it's great to be involved in the awards finals once again. As you may know, we won the award as Outstanding Small Radio Station in Australia last year. Wish us luck!!
News About Our Station Manager - Farewell to Viv and welcome Michael to the Station Manager position (no longer job-sharing).
Our current Station Manager position has been job-shared by Vivienne Rochford and Michael Ahearn for the past couple of months, but Viv's husband Brian has been successful in obtaining a position in Canberra for six to 12 months, so Viv is leaving to move to Canberra for a while - we wish you all the best in Canberra, Viv. The Committee has appointed Michael as Station Manager (part-time but not job-sharing any more)... so congratulations Michael and please give him all the assistance you can. Michael has been a volunteer at Alpine Radio since early 2018, assisting Viv and providing technical know-how in the production studio. Michael also presents a great program called Saturday Shindig on Saturday afternoons at 4.30pm.
