Article - Radio Standing With Local Community - 28/03/2020 By Jeremy Simpson
I don’t know about you, but the last 6 months has felt like a lifetime! From fires to floods to global pandemics, each of our 120 regional radio stations across our network has embraced the need to adapt daily to an ever-changing environment.
Over the coming weeks, TRSN will be sharing our journey of transitioning some of the country's oldest and most loved radio stations from their traditional way of working to providing breaking local news and content with a remote workforce across all of Australia.
While this presents its own challenges, we have identified unique opportunities for communities, clients and partners that we will share with you.
One of our local General Managers epitomised our local resilience by sending this note to clients and staff “While we do not know what lies ahead, know that we are here to support our people, our community and our clients and when this crisis is over, we will rebuild with you.”
From one media professional to another, I encourage you to reach out and work together as we have strong brands with engaged audiences who can help steer us through the times ahead.
Until next week – be positive and stay safe!
