What have you got to say about your local radio station Bay FM? Bay FM are running a listener survey and they are interested in hearing from you about how they can improve, change and make your radio station more responsive to the needs of the local community and beyond.

‘This is a joint venture between Bay FM and Southern Cross University (SCU),’ said a Bay FM spokesperson.

‘In collaboration with Bay FM, SCU student Patricia Espindola has compiled the survey and will provide the station with analytics, as part of her degree course work.’

The survey will provide the station with a range of feedback on listeners and potential listeners views with survey results aimed at helping Bay FM improve services to the listeners of the Byron Shire and beyond.

Please take a little time to fill this out online – if you are or have been a Bay FM listener, if you would like to see our local station thrive into the future. We are interested in your views.’

To access and complete the survey go to www.bayfm.org.

‘Don’t hold back, get online and give Bay FM some feedback!’ said the Bay FM team.

Like all businesses we are struggling to keep food on the table of all our local and hard working journalists, artists, sales, delivery and drudges who keep the news coming out to you both in the newspaper and online. If you can spare a few dollars a week – or maybe more – we would appreciate all the support you are able to give to keep the voice of independent, local journalism alive.

  2. The article in the paper said they are giving away dinner for 2 if you fill this out. The survey didn’t get my contact details – how do I claim my dinner voucher?
