What we do

Radio Woodville is your locally owned and operated community radio station.

Community supported

The station is a community radio station giving access to all community groups to advertise their events and activities. Radio Woodville has an Outside Broadcast caravan and so can bring the radio station to you. We are a stepping stone for those wanting radio training and expertise to get paid employment in the Radio Industry.

Fund raising

Radio Woodville being an incorporated non-profit Volunteer organisation still has to pay all the bills associated with running a Radio Station. To raise money to pay these bills, it runs a Weekly Bonus Ball raffle. This extends to a number of sheets each week and a $2 investment gives the pundits a chance of winning the prize of $40 per sheet.

Supporting local business etc

The Radio station is here to support the community. Part of that community is its businesses. The station offers radio advertising to these businesses. It certainly is the best value for money that any advertising outlet can offer. Two dollars gives you a 30 second recorded track. There are discounts offered for an annual contract.

The areas of expertise covers the following Categories: Announcing, Program preparation, Commercial writing, News reporting, Broadcasting Technical knowledge, Salesmanship, and behind the scenes support.

It’s where state highway two and three join and the trains meet and the planes fly over as well. The travelling public pass through it and are very surprised to find out the town also has its own Radio Station. The citizens of the district are very proud of this and thank you the visitors for calling in and enjoying the town’s hospitality. Radio Woodville volunteers and the station management are happy for you to come in and have a look. Radio Woodville's mission is to Entertain Educate and Inform the listening audience and the travelling Public. Maybe the station could be your stepping stone into the Radio Industry.

Call into the station and ask the Volunteer on duty for a look around and ask for an application pack. If you can't stop email the station manager and we will mail one to you. The Station has an ever increasing number of volunteers who all contribute to doing the tasks that we need to complete to keep the station going. They are keen to pass on these skills. Some of our volunteers are now fully employed and paid on other stations. You could be one too.
