Here at 2MCE we care for our community, our volunteers, our Charles Sturt University students and our staff.
Due to the current COVID-19 environment many of our volunteers have sensibly deciding to stay home, and our student presenters are returning to their families around the state, and around the country and will continue their courses on line.
This means that there will be some changes to what you normally hear on a day-to-day basis, but we will continue to ensure you hear your favourite music and get the important news and information.
Tune into Breakfast each day of the week to 9am and our presenters will give you up to date news and interviews with politicians, community representatives and bring you some light relief and great music.
The Talking Newspaper program, at 12 noon each weekday, will continue to read the Western Advocate and Central Western Daily.
Due to government recommendations on social distancing allowing only one person in the studio at any one time, you will only one person each day reading to you.
This program has been broadcast for over 40 years, and we'll do our best to make sure a pesky pandemic won't stop it from going to air.
At the end of the day, Drive will bring you the latest information and news from 4pm-5pm followed by The Wire after the 5pm National Radio News.
The Wire, previously broadcast at 6.30am, is a daily current affairs program produced by a consortium of progressive community broadcasters: Radio Adelaide, 2SER in Sydney and 4EB in Brisbane, work together to develop The Wire as a key alternative information source for the community.
2MCE is also working with our business sponsors to see how we can best support them and encourage you to do the same. We are also reaching out to schools and other organisations to see how we can support each other, and you, during this time.
In between these programs, 2MCE will bring you great music. Some music programs will come from the Community Radio Network, and there will be programs recorded by presenters in the safety of their homes.
So while 2MCE might sound a little different at times, you can be assured that when this crisis is over, all our much loved volunteers and their programs will be returning to their rightful place in our schedule.
