Media Release 36- 30 May 2012
The Goolwa community in South Australia will have a new long-term community
radio service after the Australian Communications and Media Authority decided
to allocate the licence to Radio Alexandrina Community Broadcasters Association
Inc (Alex FM).
Alex FM was one of two applicants for the Goolwa licence. The other was
Fleurieu Christian Broadcasters Inc (Spirit FM). The licence is initially for a
period of five years, when the licensee must then apply for it to be
Alex FM proposes to represent the general community interest while Spirit FM
had proposed to represent the Religious - Christian community interest.
The ACMA considered that Alex FM better demonstrated its capacity to provide
the proposed service which would be more capable of meeting the existing and
perceived future needs of the community.
Although there is already some Christian programming provided by other
broadcasting services available in the licence area, the ACMA expects Alex FM
to accommodate any remaining needs of the Christian community in the licence
area in providing its proposed service.
