Wellington Access Radio – what we have to say is worth sharing
Wellington Access Radio is the station that’s by, for, and about our community. We’re a non-profit, grassroots charity which celebrates the diversity of Wellington, the Hutt Valley and Porirua.
The station provides a media platform for groups whose voices aren’t usually heard on mainstream radio. We primarily broadcast content under section 36(c) of the Broadcasting Act – which provides for the interests of women, children and youth, persons with disabilities, languages and ethnicity, gender, sexuality, and other content which reflects the diverse religious and ethical beliefs of New Zealanders. This content sits alongside community programming, arts and culture coverage, current affairs, NZ music, and special interest programming.
Wellington Access Radio was the first established community access radio station in New Zealand, and has been on the air since April 1981. We broadcast over 80 programmes in more than 25 different languages. Our schedule is the most diverse in the region, and everyone has the opportunity to participate.
Alongside our broadcast frequency on 106.1FM we live stream and podcast all content through our website and the Access Radio Internet NZ mobile app.
