Successful year for community radio

THE annual general meeting of community radio station Tyga FM last month heard of a successful fifth year of operations, including outside broadcasts from the Derwent Valley Autumn Festival and the New Norfolk Christmas Parade.

"A report was given of the successes we have had through the year including outside broadcasts, thanks to our excellent tech team," president Bruce Lamb said. "We were one of the sponsors for the inaugural Country Music Muster at Boyer Oval that featured the Wolfe Brothers [and] there is another one coming in February 2015," he said.

Other highlights of the year included a trivia night at the New Norfolk Golf Club that raised more than $1000 and the successful completion of a Women in Community Media course by several members.

Future plans included the construction of an antennae on Peppermint Hill to boost the station's broadcasting range as well as the installation of satellite feed equipment. Mr Lamb thanked all the volunteers associated with the radio station and everyone else who had helped to make Tyga FM what it is today. "We look forward to a progressive and developmental year in 2015," he said.

Office-bearers elected at the December 18 meeting were:

  • President/ Public Officer : Bruce Lamb
  • Vice President: Scott Shaw
  • Secretary: Chifley Clarke
  • Treasurer: Cheryll McIntosh
  • Station Manager: Roz Chapman
  • Sponsorship Manager: Lexie Hayton
