LThe Wire is a daily current affairs program, broadcast exclusively on Community and Indigenous radio stations around Australia. Since 2004, The Wire has prided itself on covering news and current affairs from a different perspective to other major media outlets.
Produced in collaboration by three of Australia’s leading progressive community broadcasters – Radio Adelaide, 2SER Sydney and 4EB Brisbane, The Wire is Australia’s flagship national program for the community radio sector.
The Wire airs on Lofty every weekday morning at 8am.
