OPINION: Community radio needs our support

LIKE many students at university, it wasn't until about half way through my second year that I really decided what I wanted to do after I graduated.

Thankfully I was on the right path, but in order to get into journalism I had to complete a post graduate diploma.

One of the prerequisites to get into the program was previous work experience, so I set about finding as much as possible.

My memory is a little vague now, but I ended up volunteering for a community radio station - very similar to Coral Coast Community Radio - in my home town.

I had a weekly slot where I played music and got to talk about whatever I wanted.

I readily admit I don't have the best radio voice and to be honest, I have no idea if anyone ever listened to my segment (other than my parents), but it gave me the opportunity to learn a new skill, for which I will forever be grateful.

I hope that local businesses and groups will come forward and sponsor Coral Coast Community Radio so we won't lose this valuable resource.
