Funding plea to save 99.9 Voice FM

The people behind a well-known Ballarat community radio station are making a plea for funds as income for the not-for-profit 99.9 Voice FM has collapsed due to the COVID-19 crisis.
Ron Egeberg, who is the chair of the radio station’s board, says the broadcaster "is not in dire straits" – but needs to be up front with the local community about its financial challenges. "We have not been able to attract any sponsorship due to COVID. That is the lifeblood of what we do to be able to survive."
