Aboriginal News Aboriginal Way – National Indigenous Radio Service (NIRS)

NIRS

Hi all,

You are welcome to click on the drop box link below:

This week we re-play one of our most popular editions of WNIR as NIRS takes advantage of the Easter break, returning with our regular programming on Tuesday 22 April, 2014.

The show features a charming interview with AFL legend Adam Goodes just as he was named NSW Person of the Year 2014.  We know that he went on to achieve Australian of the Year in January.   There’s also an interview with Elder Kevin Buzzacott and an interview with film maker John Pilger before the debut of his film ‘Utopia’.

Have a safe and happy Easter break.

Kind Regards,

Michelle Tuahine | News Director

About the National Indigenous Radio Service

The National Indigenous Radio Service Limited (NIRS) is a national program distribution service that delivers four radio channels of content produced by First Nations broadcasters via satellite distribution and via the internet.

Operating from a central hub in Brisbane, NIRS receives programs from a majority of the 180+ First Nations broadcasting services across Australia.

Arguably, the NIRS satellite footprint is the largest for a First Nations radio network in the southern hemisphere, if not the world.  Given this, NIRS and its programs are unique within the Australian media environment.  Over 120 Remote Indigenous Broadcasting Services (RIBS) units, 23 Indigenous radio stations and 120 Community Broadcastes receive NIRS. To learn more about our network simply explore our new Google Map interface which show where each and every radio station is located, its website details and even includes a streaming link in some cases.

The reason why NIRS is so important to the sector is because many First Nations broadcasters haven’t the funding support to produce programs for 24/7 broadcasting or possess the funding to employ the number announcers ad producers to make enough high quality programs to support their local community audiences with the style of program that closes the gap.

So for some 15 years, NIRS has delivered its ecletic mix of broadcast programs and a national news service delivered via satellite that all major metropolitan, regional and remote communities via their Remote Indigenous Media Organisations (RIMOs) can receive and add into their regional broadcast schedules.

In this way, NIRS is dedicated to facilitating First Nations voices through broadcasting and internet radio.  We achieve this by a mix of  programs that provides critical commentary of the strategies directed towards our communities that seek to preserve, promote and maintain First Nations arts, culture, languages and community values.  Most particularly, NIRS discusses ‘Closing the Gap’ initiatives that are aimed at achieving quality of life improvements for First Nations communities across Australia.

NIRS also encourages aspirant First Nations broadcasters and RIBS to send their own programs that can be shared and thus opening a “window” to local community issues to a national audience.

For Broadcasters

For broadcasters who meet the licensing and equipment requirements but lack the funds or resources to provide a full 24-hour service, NIRS will enable them to fill any holes in their schedule with our continuous programming.  For community broadcasters who access air time through a CBAA affiliate station, NIRS will provide the opportunity for these areas to hear national Indigenous issues, as well as enabling them to boost local airtime.

The Australia Indigenous Communication Association is also a great way of making contact with First Nations Broadcasters:
