The Capricorn Coast Community Radio Station
4NAG 91.3fm is Yeppoon’s very own community radio station. More than 40 volunteers bring a wealth of skills, talent and community networks to the airways. The station produces high quality and imaginative programs and plays a key role in Yeppoon’s community.
Radio 4NAG is the non-profit making, independent, full-time community radio station located at Yeppoon on the Capricorn Coast. It have been operating since 1997 and became a permanent community broadcaster in 1999. At that time we invested in equipment to link our studio in Yeppoon’s Community Centre, to an antenna on Meikelville Hill. From this position our programs are broadcast along the Capricorn Coast from Byfield to Yeppoon and Emu Park and inland towards Rockhampton.
Radio 4NAG is staffed by volunteers and financed by fund-raising activities and grants from community bodies, donations, membership monies and station sponsors.
Community Radio is not like commercial radio and there are 300+ Community Radio Stations across Australia.
The local volunteers are united by six guiding principles:
•Promote harmony and diversity and contribute to an inclusive, cohesive and culturally diverse Australian community.
•Pursue the principles of democracy, access and equity, especially for people and issues not adequately represented in other media.
•Enhance the diversity of programming choices available to the public and present programs that expand the variety of viewpoints broadcast in Australia.
•Demonstrate independence in programming as well as in editorial and management decisions.
•Support and develop local arts and music.
•Increase community involvement in broadcasting.
