Jam Pakt comes to the end of its run

After four and a half years, Jam Pakt will wind up with show 227 on the 26th December this year.

The 1-hour radio program has gone out to as many as 284 stations across the country, hosted by Naomi ‘Nay’ Wenitong, celebrating the depth of First Nations talent, entertainment and culture while also talking about issues which affect First Nations people and giving mob a voice on what matters to them.

General Manager of Media Heads, Dave Carter, says, As we know, the last few years have been tough on a lot of us – both personally and professionally. Despite some of the challenges we’ve faced including bushfires, floods, and even a global pandemic, we’ve managed to keep Jam Pakt going as a 1-hour radio program delivered to you each and every week for the past 4-and-a-half years.

“However, over the past few months, it’s become clear that the program is no longer financially sustainable and as a result, we’ve made the difficult decision to discontinue Jam Pakt as at the end of this year. The last program will be Show 227 which is scheduled for broadcast w/c 26th December 2022.”

 The delivery schedule for the remaining programs will be as follows:

  • Thursday December 15 – Show 225
  • Wednesday December 21 – Show 226 & Show 227 (final show)

Dave says, The Jam Pakt website and Jam Pakt social channels will reflect that the program is on an indefinite hiatus and we’ll maintain the Jam Pakt brand name just in case fortunes turn around at some stage during the next 12 months. 

“I’d like to take this opportunity to thank you for all your incredible support of Jam Pakt over the 4-and-a-half years. To have 284 radio stations across the country broadcasting this program each week has been a continually humbling experience for the team behind the program and something we never took for granted form day one.

“It’s been an amazing journey and we’re very sad to see it finish.”
