Advocacy and Communications Officer-Alexandra Crerar

Begining in October 2020, to assist with marketing and communications for the 2020 CBAA Conference, and since staying on as a permanet member of the CBAA Advocacy and Communications team, Alex has become a key figure in all things communications at CBAA. Working under the Head of Advocay and Communications, Alex's role as Advocacy and Communications officer covers all things day-to-day marketing as well as tackling anything else that may come her way. 

How did you first get involved in community radio?

My involvement in community radio and the CBAA came about through a family member who previously worked at CBAA. I came on board on a short-term contract to assist the marketing and communications team in the lead up to the 2020 Community Radio Awards and Conference. Now nine months later I have just begun a new permanent part-time role as the Advocacy and Communications officer, working on prepping for the 2021 CBAA Awards and Conference as well as day-to-day marketing tasks.

What is the most challenging aspect of your role as Advocacy and Communications officer?

The best and most challenging part of my role is one in the same, in balancing the fast-paced environment of communications. I am constantly being given new tasks to contribute to and complete while also staying on top of my day-to-day tasks, which is both challenging and enjoyable as I love being involved in as many things as possible. Although juggling can be challenging, it is a great way for me to improve my multitasking skills as well as get to be involved in many different aspects of communications and marketing.

You are offered a radio show - you can have any timeslot, play whatever music you like, discuss whatever you feel is of interest - what is happening today on the Alexandra Crerar Variety Hour Radio Show?

My taste in music is weird and wonderful, so my variety hour would consist of a mix of new pop, 90’s R&B, a little bit of 2000’s pop punk, and a touch of EDM. All while discussing the latest trends in pop culture, Australian Media, and TV. I would bring in all my favourite radio personalities and Australian comedians to co-host as well as my closest friends to discuss their favourite artists. My show would be an hour jam-packed with different styles of music and conversation, with each episode changing and covering something new to keep my listeners on their toes.
