CITY PARK RADIO VOLUNTEERS REWARDED
During National Volunteer Week, the City Of Launceston recognised the value of volunteers with their 2019 awards. Two volunteers were especially acknowledged for the time they give to City Park Radio.
David Mohr receives a special volunteer award for his contribution to the City of Launceston for showcasing our local sporting culture. Since 2013, David has produced, presented and coordinated all his volunteer co-commentators. His only reward – the love of it. Nothing will stop him from broadcasting footy in the afternoon and basketball in the evening. An entirely voluntary effort from David.
Chris Sayer receives an outstanding volunteer award. From the first meeting in 1978, Chris has been a contributor to City Park Radio whether it be programming, management, fundraising or administration. Recently retired from paid work, Chris has increased his volunteering and is now involved with sporting broadcasts and revived the HOT SEAT program. In between, he has been heavily involved backstage in Launceston theatre productions. Chris is in his 41st year of volunteering for the Launceston community via City Park Radio.Membership renewal 2017

STATE OF THE COMMUNITY RADIO SECTOR REPORT.
In the first of its kind, the CBAA State of the Sector report brings together a range of data sources to provide insights into Australia’s largest independent media sector, a key pillar in local broadcasting and internationally recognised example of grassroots media – community broadcasting.
Community broadcasting is thriving, and it shows. Audience research released in December 2018 shows that highest national listening audience on record. Almost 6 million Australians listen to community radio each week – that’s 30% of Australians aged 15+ years. Awareness of community radio is also increasing. 136,00 people in Tasmania listen to community radio each week.
Alongside this, radio’s place alongside other audio listening formats holds strong, with 62.3% of all audio listening being live Australian radio (the remainder is a mix of music streaming, owned music, podcasts, online music videos, other audio, audiobooks, TV music channels and other radio.
