The Triple M and Hit networks have joined the growing list of radio stations that will stand together this ANZAC Day to encourage listeners from across the nation to support Australian service men and women.
The ANZAC Day Commemorative Service will be broadcast across all 98 stations, on the both the Triple M and Hit networks, live from the Australian War Memorial in Canberra.
Justin Wilbur, who is the son of a Vietnam War Veteran, created a Facebook group to spread the word of a new way to commemorate ANZAC Day while the world is isolation.
Justin told Carrie & Tommy that when the traditional ANZAC Day service was cancelled, he decided to try and find a different way to commemorate the day.
Listeners are encouraged to head to the end of their driveways, balconies or backyards and listen by tuning in to the radio or streaming the service from the Triple M or Hit network apps.
Head of Hit Network, Gemma Fordham, said: “This year we can’t attend our local dawn service but we hope delivering the commemorative service through our radio stations and app gives every person and family the opportunity to remember.
“We know during these times we are unable to stand together, and on a day that is so significant to us all, we know the importance of symbolising to those whom we have lost, to those who have bravely served and those who continue to serve, that we stand with them.”
Head of Triple M Network, Mike Fitzpatrick, said: “April 25th is a significant day in Australia and Triple M is privileged to be able to help our listeners commemorate our service men and women both past and those currently serving.”
