As with many media outlets the challenges and opportunities of new technologies are only too apparent. In 2016 the Board held a Strategy Day with volunteers and members to commence the process of mapping a strategy for 2RPH to deal with those challenges and to ensure relevance for the disabled into the future.
To continue to focus on ensuring the station is run efficiently and that any changes meet the needs of our current and future listeners, we are embarking on the next phase of building the strategy by undertaking a review of all programs that go to air.
Part of this undertaking will be asking all our current on-air presenters to submit a proposal for their current program, as well as encouraging new program submissions and feedback from listeners. All in a bid to make 2RPH the most relevant, informative, entertaining and educational radio reading service in NSW.
This is a significant undertaking and we want to ensure everyone feels supported throughout this process through relevant information and updates, and assistance in further details as required.
Update: The deadline for existing and new program proposals was December 22, 2017. The 12-member Program Review Panel has reviewed each submission and has recorded their assessment. These assessments will now be sent to the 2RPH Program Advisory Group (PAG), who will discuss the next step in the program review process to ensure we can improve the station's programming for our audience.
While the deadline for program submissions has passed, we would welcome any ideas or suggestions for improving the station or the programming through our feedback form. Each piece of feedback received from listeners will be recorded and taken into future meetings of the PAG.
- Program Advisory Group meeting: Mid February 2018
- Review Panel meeting: Early March 2018
Thank you for being a part of making 2RPH the valued service so many listeners come to rely on for their news, current affairs, social news and entertainment. We are aware of the time and energy it takes to put a program together, and we appreciate all of your efforts in making this radio reading service possible for NSW listeners.
