SBS’s flagship Indigenous radio program relaunched as NITV Radio

From today SBS Radio’s dedicated radio program for Indigenous issues, news and culture, SBS Living Black Radio, will be known as NITV Radio. 
As an extension to the increasing collaboration between NITV and SBS Radio’s Living Black program, the rebranding to NITV Radio will offer audiences the opportunity to engage with all our Indigenous content under the one banner as NITV – on TV, Radio, Online and on social platforms.
SBS Director for Audio and Language Content, Mandi Wicks said: “Since its inception in 1980, Living Black Radio has been a distinctive feature of SBS Radio. As NITV Radio, the program will continue to make a valuable and vital contribution to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander broadcasting in Australia, and remains a distinctive program that we are incredibly proud to have as a part of our schedule.”
NITV, Channel Manager, Tanya Orman said: “At NITV, we are passionate about delivering trusted storytelling to a wider Australian audience. This rebranding is an exciting move and a powerful development for Indigenous media.”
NAIDOC Week, which runs from 2-9 July, celebrates the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. As part of the celebration, NITV Radio has curated special programming reflecting on the themes of culture and language.
Monday 3 July: Interview with the NAIDOC Week Poster Competition winner, Wiradjuri woman, Joanne Cassady. Her poster is titled Your Tribe, My Tribe, Our Nation – aligning with NAIDOC Week 2017’s theme of ‘Our Languages Matter’.
Wednesday 5 July: An analysis of Indigenous languages spoken at home from the 2016 Census Data by Professor Jakelin Troy, Director of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Research/ Deputy Vice-Chancellor Indigenous Strategy and Services, The University of Sydney.
