Good News Radio recently received a grant from the Community Broadcasting Foundation (CBF) to produce ten half-hour radio programs for youth aged between twelve to nineteen years old. The programs will be available to Community Radio stations around Australia and will be produced by GNR’s newly appointed Youth Director, Hayden Rees.

Good News Radio invite any youth interested in being involved in the program to contact them on phone 5339 9958 or via email goodnews103.9@gmail.com . Good News Radio is located at 3 College Street, Wendouree.

 “I have been a radio presenter at Good News Radio for three years now and it has been an experience I will never forget. I am proud to announce that I am the new Youth Director at the station and because of this, I am now gathering material for ten half-hour programs for people that are aged between twelve to nineteen years old. The programs will be available for other Community Radio stations around Australia and have been funded by a grant from the Community Broadcasting Foundation (CBF) and are to be completed by June 30th, 2018. The programs will eventually be available on podcast and YouTube.

This is a great opportunity for young people to be involved in Good News Radio’s new program that shines God’s message about the youth. The programs will be discussing interests and aspirations that the youth would like to pursue and God’s purpose for them. The challenges that are facing the youth like social media and bullying. Their hopes for change and making a difference wherever they are. We also can discuss about other fun and exciting topics that also may include stories and testimonies.

We also have the opportunity to interview people about their careers and goals. I had the privilege of interviewing Christian artists like Levi McGrath and we discussed about how God came into his music and the star from the hit musical in Melbourne, Aladdin, Ainsley Melham. We discussed about his career, the musical and also his advice to young people about the industry. We have also had Ballarat Christian College Year 12 students, Jeremy and Isaac as a part of Good News Radio.

The programs have the technical support of the team at Good News Radio. We have a live to air program and I invite any youth who are interested in this project to join me on Tuned In on at 3:30pm-5pm on any Saturday afternoon at Good News Radio. This is an awesome opportunity to be God’s voice of hope to the Ballarat community.” Hayden Rees, Youth Director, Good News Radio.
