Promising year ahead – AGM


An engaging group of RPP FM members attended the RPP FM 2016 Annual General Meeting on Sunday.

Detail of the ‘year that was’ and the exciting future ahead for the local radio station was outlined during the meeting.

RPP FM president, Graeme Kniese opened proceedings proudly thanking volunteers, presenters and tech support for another year of professional broadcasting and production input.

Mr Kniese made special mention of Ellice Viggers who resigned from her duty as Secretary and Public Officer after 33 years of service to the station.

Station Manager, Brendon Telfer opened his address saying it was an interesting year – all working extremely hard and we should be extremely proud of what we have achieved.

“Our listening audience has increased on web streaming and our social platform, thanks to the contribution of every one at the station. This equates to the most listeners for RPP FM in its history,” Mr Telfer explained.

With the introduction of news, current affairs and ‘The Age Stage’ programs has attributed to our increased reach.

“And the other fantastic news is that we are getting endorsements from our sponsors that they are beginning to see ‘activity’, an endorsement of what we are doing.” Mr Telfer said.

He added, “We need to start strategizing – what do we have to do to maintain this momentum? – We have to plan for the future in the digital world.”

RPP FM’s mission is always to make this the best local radio station in Australia. “Only other small stations like us can only dream of what we are achieving,” Mr Telfer concluded.

At the meeting, a new Ordinary Committee member and a replacement for the outgoing Secretary/Public Officer was announced.

RPP FM survives on volunteers and hard workers who work tirelessly and give up their time to steer towards the vision of making this the best local radio station in Australia.

RPP FM offers a safe and supportive environment for young people completing a course or degree in media communication and journalism to gain value experience in their career.
