RTRFM has a new General Manager

Karen Lee is the new GM at RTRFM, bringing to the station many years of experience in creative industries working in the private, not-for-profit, and public sectors across music touring and events, arts and community projects, and business management. 

She has been a long-standing advocate for artists’ rights and local culture.
Taking the helm as the oldest FM station in the state enters its 42nd year, Karen is looking forward to embracing the challenges and opportunities that are emerging in the music and arts sectors. “We’re living in such a dynamic and invigorating time for audio content makers, story-tellers, and music selectors,”
 “I’m determined to make sure that RTRFM and all the people who give the station its unique identity and quality can capitalise on the many opportunities available. With the right strategy, innovation, and partners, all our rich and varied local action can reach global audiences and be part of a vibrant international exchange of stories, sounds, and ideas.  What a terrific time to be taking the helm!”.
RTRFM Chair Rewi Lyall added, “’We’re all excited to get 2019 underway with her new energy and ideas driving our strategy to become a leading community digital content production company in Australia.”
The community station is home to 48 specialty music and talks programs, presented by over 350 volunteer presenters and is dedicated to showcasing West Australian artists and stories as it continues to develop the scope and delivery of its content.
Lee will officially take over as GM in the new year replacing Stu MacLeod who stepped down in November to take a role with Fairbridge Festival.
