KIAMA COMMUNITY RADIO – FOR THE COMMUNITY BY THE COMMUNITY
Kiama Community Radio (KCR) is a non-profit community-based organisation run by volunteers. KCR is an online radio service produced by local residents for the communities in the Kiama Local Government Area communities from Minnamurra in the north to Gerroa in the south and Jamberoo in the west.
Initially launched in July 2020 as a podcasting service, KCR has now produced over 300 podcasts that document the life of the Kiama Municipality community. KCR is now streaming live to air 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
KCR provides podcasting and broadcasting training to people of all ages, giving the local community a voice. KCR provides local artists a new platform to connect with their audiences; businesses an alternative way to reach their customers and community groups a chance to promote their activities.
KCR aims to grow into a live-to-air, FM community radio station, reach wider audiences and be recognised as a valuable community resource.
