Ethnic digital stations collaborate for special broadcast

Wednesday 10 February, 2016
Unity in Diversity special broadcast

Five ethnic digital community radio stations from across Australia will collaborate for the first time to deliver a special 10 hour national broadcast in celebration of Australia’s vibrant culture.

Unity in Diversity will broadcast on World Radio Day, 13 February 2016, from 09:00 – 19:00 local time in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Perth and Adelaide. Stations in each city, 3ZZZ, 2OOO Languages, 4EB Global Digital, 6EBA World, and 5EBI Digital, will each deliver two hours of unique radio programming.

This is the first broadcast of this kind by this group of stations, and it will utilise the CBAA's Digital Contribution Network. The broadcast will also be made available to stations subscribed to the Community Radio Network to broadcast on their analogue services.

Peter Rohweder, Station Manager 4EB Global Digital, sees this as a fantastic opportunity for his and the other stations involved.

"This will be the first combined national broadcast involving these stations and we’re all excited to produce something special for listeners across these 5 cities," Rohweder says. "Bringing together stations spread across the country is challenging, but hugely rewarding – along with creating programming of national interest, working together will allow us to showcase each station and their talented producers."
