Resources

We have lots of resources at your disposal, ensuring your voice is represented as best as it can be.

Trained and Experienced Staff

Access Manawatu has three staff members who can assist you in getting your message out there.

  • The Station Manager ensures that the station continues to offer relevant and effective services to the community and works to promote the station in new and exciting ways. Often, programme makers identify ways to link in with wider station initiatives, resulting in big benefits to both parties.
  • The Programme Coordinator is the direct support to programme makers and is the director of station sound. The Programme Coordinator will train you, support you, schedule your show, offer constructive advice, and help with music, promos and other on air material you require.
  • Our Community Engagement Coordinator is also available to help spread your message via Social Media, and can assist you with setting up your digital presence online as well as social networking.
Two fully equipped studios

Both of our studios offer up to date equipment in a sleek environment where the emphasis is on ease of use.

  • Our On-Air show is where live shows happen, and at the touch of a button, it can be used as a recording facility. It also has a telephone hybrid unit, allowing phone calls to be made and taken for recording and broadcast.
  • The Production Studio is a versatile room where we can host live music sessions, group discussion and debate, radio plays and more. It is also on air capable if required.
Comprehensive Training and Support

Every new programme maker is taken through a brief but full induction where show planning, studio use and legal issues are addressed.
The first few shows are closely monitored by a station staff member, and further training and advice given where required.
We also offer regular training sessions open to all programme makers, focusing on commonly requested features or practises. If you have an idea for a training session, please let us know.

Portable and Versatile equipment

As well as the equipment associated with the outside project we also have 2 portable recorders for off site interviews, and the ability to record larger events if required.

Online services

As well as broadcasting on 999AM, Access Manawatu offers Live Streaming of the feed to anyone with a computer.
As well as that we have an OnDemand service, where ANYONE can download your show for enjoyment at a time suitable for them. (These programmes are also made available as iTunes podcasts).
Each show is featured on our website on the shows pages and is given a dedicated shows page to give listeners more information.
Access Manawatu also has a facebook page and twitter account where show information is regularly posted.
