Kiama Community Radio launches new website to reconnect the community during COVID-19 Crisis

Wednesday 27 May, 2020

A new online website station will begin on the South Coast of NSW when Kiama Community Radio (KCR), begins in June.
The station has been launched by a group of locals in a bid to reconnect the local community at a time when many are feeling disconnected and isolated at home.
Founding committee member, Graeme Gherashe, says, “The idea for KCR came about when we were all suddenly told to stay home, and all the ways we usually connect to each other were taken away from us, particularly for the older generations within our community. There’s a lot of global information available right now, but nothing that is specific to our own backyard.
“We are hoping that this new service will reignite our community spirit by sharing positive news stories and local information. Our local artists in particular are wasted sitting at home by themselves; we want them to continue their craft and keep us all entertained with their music, stories and projects.”
The new service will be dedicated to communities in the Kiama area from Minnamurra in the north to Gerroa in the south and Jamberoo in the west.
Initially launching as a weekly one-hour-long show via the website, over time more audio content will be accessible via podcasts, webcasts and possibly over other channels. 
The station’s inaugural host will be local comedian and actress, Diana McLaren.
KCR is a community-based organisation run by volunteers, and as such is asking for like-minded people to get involved in the running of the station.
The station is currently looking for anyone with production and technical radio experience, both in front of the mic and behind the scenes, and an IT Manager. Broadcast training will be provided if required.
