Speakers Bank had been going on-air for a year now through a partnership with Rita Hartney’s “Hot Topics with Rita” radio show over CASEY FM 97.7 based in Cranbourne, a community radio station servicing the areas of Melbourne’s south-eastern suburbs. Every month, a speaker is interviewed by Rita to discuss their lived experience and other issues around disability.
Recently, Speakers Bank struck an opportunity to guest at another community radio station, this time at WYN FM 88.9, based at Hoppers Crossing. WYN FM serves the City of Wyndham and its surrounding areas.
On 6th of September, Mimi Laurilla (Project Officer) introduced Speakers Bank and how it helps provide public speaking opportunities for people with disabilities, the ageing and the disadvantaged. On 13th of September, Storm Robbins was guest to discuss overcoming bullying and developing leadership abilities.
Speakers Bank would like to thank Reece Howell, and the radio crew of the program “Off the Wall” for giving them an opportunity to share on-air, and also give thanks to Mambourin Enterprises for linking Speakers Bank to WYN FM.
Who knows – there might be more opportunities for Speakers Bank might to get more regular radio gigs in the western side of Melbourne in the future, so watch this space!
