World Radio Day 2020 letter

Thursday 13 February, 2020

Almost every Australian has a climate change story to tell from this summer holiday.

Fires, smoke, power outages and now floods.

We are used to the cycle of natural disasters in Australia, but this summer has been different. This is the year that the effects of climate change disasters came to the cities.

Smoke obscured the Harbour Bridge and the banks of the Yarra River. Eerie red suns shone over Brisbane and Adelaide. Power outages were felt in many cities. Now floods have finally put out the fires, but have also swept away cars and trees.

World Radio Day: Why radio still matters

Wednesday 13 February, 2013

Steve Ahern’s personal insights into world radio, and why it still matters.


In Sydney, Australia this week, a caller to ABC local radio asked for 702’s informative broadcasts to reach younger listeners by simulcasting on FM. In Juba, the capital of the world’s newest country, South Sudan, listeners rang in to praise radio stations for the important work they are doing in rebuilding their country. 

Both events show that radio is still important and relevant to people in every part of the world.
