Territory FM opens its doors 


Territory FM had plenty to show off yesterday (Thursday) during a station tour as part of O-Week activities.

The station has recently undergone a make-over, with two of its three studios recently equipped with state-of-the-art broadcasting equipment. The main studio has also been relocated to allow room for guest speakers and local musicians (and their instruments).

Territory FM is a not-for-profit organisation and as such has limited staff according to Station Programmer and Breakfast Host Geoff Cannon.

“As is common in most community radio stations, staff resources are limited. Most of us are both on-air presenters and play some role in marketing, programming or producing,” said Geoff.

Community stations from around the Territory, including Gove, Nhulunbuy and Katherine regularly tap into Territory FM’s talkback program broadcast daily.
The station has certainly come a long way in recent times, but proudly retains its strong community links. Multicultural programs are regularly broadcast on Territory FM.

“We have a great team here who are continually developing the quality of programming on the station. We are looking forward to an even more successful 2006,” Geoff said.
