Augusta Community Radio is a community radio station that aims to improve the quality of life of our listeners by social inclusiveness, increase volunteerism, leadership and to provide a communication network using radio as its medium.
The Management Committee appoints a programming committee to oversee the quality of broadcasting on the station, provide mentorship, feedback about programs and makes recommendations on the commissioning of new programs.
The committee calls for new programs on a quarterly basis and reviews the timetable of programs at the station annually. In considering program proposals the Program Committee will take into account the need of individuals or groups who are not adequately served by other media in our service area.
When applying for a program timeslot the applicant is encouraged to discuss their idea with the Station Manager and or the Program Manager. Consider if similar programs already exist and consider if the proposed program fits into the overall objectives of the station.
