Amy Leiper, 17th May 2022

Tune in to the Community Radio Network for live coverage of the 2022 Federal Election.

Join Julie Macken (Five Minute Advocate) and Frank Bonaccorso (National Radio News’ News Director) as they lead our live election night coverage and analysis from 7pm to 11pm AEST.

Correspondents from stations across the country, including 8CCC2GLFRTRFM4ZZZFBi and 2SER will add to the coverage. We'll cross live to Amanda Copp and Emily Minnie who will be with election leaders at their gatherings. Partnering with university student publication, Junction Journalism, we will talk with a collection of experts and commentators to discuss policies and how they will affect different areas around the country.

Abe Killian, CBAA’s Content Services Manager, said, "As an avowed Election Nerd, it’s been great to be able to speak to members from stations about issues in their area and provide them with this national platform. Listeners will get a great view of the issues that affect communities, while at the same time get information from our experts, including Amanda Copp, our Canberra Political Journalist who will be on the ground with the Prime Minister."

Community Radio Network’s broadcast partners include National Radio News and Junction Journalism.

Election coverage will be sent across CRN-1 via satellite from 7pm to 11pm AEST.
