Lofty: Broadcasting on 88.9FM 24/7 from 1 October 2020

21 September 2020

Lofty 88.9 to go 24/7 in the Adelaide Hills from 1 October 2020.

After almost two years of FM broadcasting on a part-time basis, Lofty is thrilled to confirm that we will commence full-time broadcasting throughout the Adelaide Hills on 88.9FM from 1 October 2020.

Since 2017, we’ve worked tirelessly to build a valuable cultural and community asset for the Adelaide Hills region.  Whilst Lofty has successfully built a multi-faceted, 100% volunteer-operated not for profit media organisation across various online platforms, our flagship is FM broadcasting.

Our genuine efforts to achieve this end have been recognised by the Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA), resulting in Lofty being allocated the community broadcasting licence in the Adelaide Hills region.

In handing down its decision, ACMA cited Lofty’s “strong focus on encouraging community participation in the operations and programming of the station”.

Lofty’s Board, management and founders give heartfelt thanks to our members, volunteers, sponsors, advocates and supporters.

We look forward to working with the entire Adelaide Hills community. We encourage people either with or without community broadcasting experience to join us in this journey.

Lofty Community Media Board Members.
