The Voice of West Gippsland, 103.1 3BBR-FM received the Keep Australia Beautiful Tidy Towns 2003 State Award in the Radio category. The award was presented at the Wangaratta last weekend.
The nomination for the award was made by the Trafalgar District Tidy Towns Committee, and came as a complete surprise to the Committee and presenters at 3BBR-FM. The basis for the nomination was the support and promotion given by 3BBR-FM to the activities of local organizations, in a variety of ways - through free to air community service announcements, interviews, and outside broadcasting of events.
Over nine hundred groups in the listening area have benefited from this service to the listening public. 3BBR-FM has been broadcasting from its Drouin studios since 1995. All presenters are volunteers, and provide their own resources so that the station can operate twenty four hours a day. Community radio is the training ground for many of today's radio and television presenters, and 3BBR-FM provides training for interested people of all ages. 3BBR-FM is committed to providing promotion for local community events free of charge, and invites community organizations to contact the station on 5625 4995, or to fax their information to 5625 1149.
