Spoken Word Programming


Community broadcasting services operate for the benefit of the community and to represent our chosen community of interest. As a sector, we pursue the principles of democracy, access and equity, especially for people and issues not adequately represented in other media. We enhance the diversity of programming choices available to the public, present programs that expand the variety of viewpoints broadcast in Australia and demonstrate independence in programming as well as in editorial and management decisions.

As part of fulfilling this valuable role, the sector offers range of information and talk – based programming, including general spoken word programming, news bulletins and current affairs programming.

When you’re reporting on domestic violence, you can help listeners to see it as an important issue that everyone can take action on.
