About Lofty

Lofty Community Media Incorporated was founded in 2017 by a small but enthusiastic team of people with one common vision: to build a valuable cultural and community asset for the Adelaide Hills. We do this for the love of communication, the love of music and the love of our fellow Hills dwellers.

After a lot of hard work and overwhelming support from our local community, we achieved one of our Lofty Goals: an FM broadcasting licence.

In November 2018, Lofty commenced broadcasting on 88.9FM every Sunday, Monday and Tuesday.

In September 2020, Lofty won the sole long-term community FM broadcasting licence servicing the Adelaide Hills, resulting in Lofty 88.9 broadcasting permanently from 1 October 2020.

Our 24/7 live stream continues to be accessible via a range of platforms and devices. You can listen to Lofty at home on your stereo through a smart device, at work on your computer, in your car anywhere, anytime. Download the Community Radio Plus app to listen to Lofty and hundreds of other Australian community radio stations wherever you have internet access.

Lofty continues to be managed and operated by a growing band of passionate volunteers – we have no payroll, so everything you see and hear is created and curated by people doing what they do purely out of love. Our Board, which is made up entirely of Adelaide Hills locals, is dedicated to growing and maintaining Lofty. Read our Strategic Plan.

We always welcome new members with fresh ideas and a sense of adventure to join us.
