SYN Broadcaster Rose Houghton reflects on the opportunities given to her by Community Radio.


Community radio creates opportunities for young broadcasters to practice, learn and be involved in radio. It has been a massive part of my life for the last three years, giving me the chance to broadcast on air and be a part of the media industry. I have been able to learn so many skills and put back a little bit into the community.

Community radio talks about local matters and plays a wide range of music. It is so important that SYN and other community stations are not left behind, as it is such an imperative part of the community. Without community radio I wouldn’t know half the things I do about radio and wouldn’t be able to practice and learn more.

Rose Houghton is a SYN Volunteer on Get Cereal and the producer of her own show, Da’Burbs. She has also volunteered with 3RRRFM and was 2012’s recipient of the radioinfo prize at RMIT.
