Over the five months since the Kiama Community Radio officially launched, they have published over 75 ‘radio’ shows, which have been downloaded nearly 4,000 times. It now publishes weekly ‘What’s on’, Local New, and Sports segments, as well as two longer form community interest segments.
The Kiama Community Radio team are now conducting a survey aimed at finding out how they are going. They want to understand how they can extend their reach across the broader Kiama LGA, particularly to those people who may prefer to listen to the radio over AM/FM signal and those that may not be digitally well connected.
The Council for the Aging note that people over 65 are the least digitally connected, and that a little over 6 in 10 over the age of 65 are internet users. As the Kiama Community Radio is currently only available online via podcast, it is likely to be missing a cohort of vulnerable isolated people in Kiama.
If you’d like to support the Kiama Community Radio in this endeavour please complete the online survey, or alternatively complete the attached printable version.
If you have a friend or relative who may be interested but they are not online or don’t listen to podcasts, please feel free to pass it on or help them to complete it.
Printed surveys can be returned via post as detailed below, or email firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange for a manual collection.
