The community digital radio (DAB+) services of 98.9fm (Brisbane), Koori Radio 93.7fm (Sydney), 3KND (Melbourne) and Noongar Radio (Perth) will host a special 12-hour broadcast tomorrow, 8 July 2015, to celebrate the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and mark NAIDOC Week.

Blackchat Presenter Lola ForesterThe Radio NAIDOC broadcast will also be delivered via the CBAA's Community Radio Network satellite service, VAST 2, and the National Indigenous Radio Service.

Gavin Ivey program manager of Koori Radio says the station is embracing this year’s NAIDOC Week theme: We all Stand on Sacred Ground: Learn, Respect & Celebrate.

“We’re excited to be broadcasting from and on sacred grounds of old Radio Redfern and Black Theatre with our deadly line-up of Lola Forester (Blackchat; pictured) and Making Tracks presenter, Emily Nichol.”

For Noongar broadcaster and station manager Wayne Bynder the broadcast provides an opportunity to showcase the diversity and culture of Indigenous peoples in Western Australia.  Wayne, along with well-known Noongar personality Jim Morrison, will co-host live broadcast of Perth’s NAIDOC Celebration Concert from Perth Cultural Centre.

“Noongar Radio is excited to be part of another national broadcast and look forward to the day when a broadcast of this nature can be more than a one-off during NAIDOC week.”

The broadcast begins at 9am AEST with Indigenous radio pioneer, Tiga Bayles at Brisbane’s 98.9fm.

Radio NAIDOC has been developed with the assistance of the Community Broadcasting Foundation and the Community Broadcasting Association of Australia's (CBAA) Digital Radio Project.
