RPP’s Vision for the Future

With the launch of the new visual platform, RPPV, creating all sorts of excitement we decided to grab a few moments with station manager, Brendon Telfer, and have him explain to us just what the hell a radio station is doing broadcasting vision…

“We all know the way we communicate and the way we receive our information is changing all the time. People walk about with an entire home entertainment system in their pockets. If they’re not listening to Spotify, they’re watching the news, or the footy or bingeing a Netflix season on the train-ride home. If RPP FM is to fulfill its responsibility to our community we must stay relevant. We choose to live and work and play on the beautiful Mornington Peninsula, and it’s our job at RPP to share all that’s wonderful and interesting about our home across all platforms. If we are to compete with the big boys, and continue to help nurture and grow community engagement through our huge variety of programs, we have to build on our 35 year FM legacy and move on. We already provide live digital streaming, podcasting and vodcasting. RPPV becomes our next, rich offering.”

Access to the latest high-end technology – once only the preserve of TV stations – will allow RPPV to create a full suite of visual programming that will include: live local sport, local lifestyle and local news. In the months leading up to launch RPPV tested a number of programs including live coverage of MPNFL games and a number of extremely popular, audience-attended performances from our soundstage, Studio 3. Brendon believes RPP is now is well placed to meet its growing audience head-on. “There are plans to migrate some current radio programs across to the visual medium, with proposals for fresh new screen shows flying through the door. With RPPV I now feel confident we can continue to stay relevant and make a difference for our bayside listeners and viewers. Stay tuned!”
