The Last Gardening Show - Steve & Kyria

Last Saturday, (23rd December), 2AIR-FM broadcast its last Gardening Show.
Started when 2AIR was broadcasting from the Jetty studios, the Gardening Show has been a regular feature on Saturday mornings at 9.30am.
Throughout the show, Steve and Kyria would provide advice on a wide range of gardening topics, along with musical interludes and answers to listener questions.
To mark the final broadcast, a cake was cut and enjoyed by Steve, Kyria and station identities.

New Programs

We are thrilled to present a totally new program designed to highlight the cultural side of our district.

CREATIVE CORNER, presented by Olga, will bring you news from the Library, various exhibitions, news from the many creative and artistic groups in the area as well as theatre and performance news.
It's a program that acknowledges and promotes the large and diversified talent in our area.

An additional feature is the inclusion of a new segment titled Narratives, where authors read from their latest published work/book. The gripping short 5 minutes segments have been carefully pepared by Karena from 2BAY FM (Byron Bay). Topics range from travel, cooking to philosophy and fiction.

Creative Corners goes to air at 10.30am every Tuesday.

 

 

More Interviews

Four presenters have undergone intensive training to interview people from our area.
Our Community program every Thursday at 9am usually has one or two people from the area as guests.
Paula Lennon can now have her deserved breaks and know that Heather, Fran, Trea , Richard, Maria can host this vital community program.
Another example of how 2AIR FM is developing its presenters and expanding its Community role.

 

 

Training

In the last 6 months we have welcomed six new presenters who now have various shifts through-out the week.
Val, Fran and Andrew do an exceptional job with one to one hands-on technical training whilst Richard leads them through the legal and operational aspect of the station.
The next training course will commence later April/early May.

The station also received a Grant to allow 20 presenters to participate in a weekend courses delivered by CMTO (professional training).
The courses focussed on Advanced Presentation and the Sunday course was all about Interviewing.
It is very pleasing so many Presenters attended in their desire to improve their broadcasting skills.
