Resources include:

These easy-to-use resources provide an all-round basic guide to how to do radio reading programs in Australia.  They are helpful for stations, staff and volunteers who work in radio reading programs.

Our resources can help you with:

  • How to start and develop a radio reading program
  • How to find and train suitable personnel
  • How to engage support from your local community
  • How to forge partnerships with local newspapers and other publishers
  • How to present and produce radio reading content in your studios
  • How to improve disability access at your studios
  • Where to find suitable technical and online support
  • What to do about copyright and other on-air legal issues

They also feature inspiring stories from stations and broadcasters who’ve made great programs; as well as links and contacts for many relevant agencies and organisations, research and more.

Our revision of these resources has been informed by latest legal, technical, training and other expert advice. They’re written in straightforward plain English.

Please share these links with everyone at your station/organisation that might benefit from them, and adapt them for use at your station.

Under the agreement extension, CBAA and RPHA will continue to be co-managed by Jon Bisset, the CBAA CEO, but will remain governed by two separate boards of directors. This will preserve the uniqueness of the Network’s programs and services
