War Memorial Dawn Service Simulcast on MIX 106.3

Canberra’s MIX 106.3 and the Australian War Memorial have embarked in a new partnership which will have the full National Dawn Service broadcast live through the region to those who cannot be at the ceremony in front of the AWM this ANZAC Day.

The partnership will extend the reach of this important and poignant event to even more Australians in the region as we, and our New Zealand neighbours, remember the sacrifice of those before us and of those men and women currently serving in modern day war zones around the globe.

The broadcast will begin at 4:30am and conclude at 6am. The running order of the broadcast is:


Leith Arundel, a local Canberra actor, will read excerpts from letters and diaries of Australians who experienced first-hand war in all its facets.


Corporal Ben Roberts-Smith VC MG will read emotive accounts of Australian service in Afghanistan.

5:28am – 6:00am

Dawn Service

MIX 106.3 Content Director, Drew Chapman, says, “The ANZAC Day Dawn Service is such an important event, especially in the ACT with so much of the Defense Force community based here, that it makes perfect sense to broadcast the ceremony so those who cannot be at the Memorial can feel that they are part of this National Service.”
