Australia Day accolade for local radio

THE official launch of Tyga FM - Derwent Valley Community Radio - has been named the municipality's Community Event of the Year.

The new radio station was launched on December 14, 2009, and that celebration was attended by about 50 people. Broadcasting at 98.9 on the FM band, the station is housed in temporary facilities at the Valley Vision office in High St while a purpose-built facility is being erected at New Norfolk High School.

Congratulations to all the volunteers associated with Derwent Valley Community Radio on their hard work and perseverance since 2005, and also to those who laid the groundwork through their earlier efforts working to the same aim.
