How We Shape the News Webinar

WEBINAR: How we shape the news and deliver a community radio agenda

Joshua Cole, 11th April 2024

Community Radio is committed to delivering news that speaks with an independent voice and on behalf of the community. It needs to offer a diversity of voices and perspectives that are not always heard in mainstream media. So how does the sector go about creating an editorial agenda and developing stories that reflect this goal? In this webinar we will be discussing different approaches in capturing stories that can be shared across the sector and the best practices when delivering community radio’s news and current affairs. A key part of the editorial process is discussion and sharing of knowledge, so why not join us and share your ideas, ask questions, and help shape the way that news is captured and delivered?


Date: 3PM AEST, Tuesday 16 April 2024


Presented by:

  • Noah Secomb - Journalist in the Press Gallery in Canberra, part of CBAA's National Radio News (NRN)

  • Rhianna Patrick - Senior Journalist at National Indigenous Radio Service

  • Matt Field - Project Director of Disability Media Australia.

  • Rebecca Wotzko - manager of National Radio News.


The conversation will be facilitated by the CBAA’s News Network Director, Martin Davies.
