Submitting News or giving Feedback?

Getting in touch with the News Team is simple, send an email to newswest@vk6.net, the team will receive the email and one of us will reply - often within the hour. Please remember we're all volunteers.

Deadlines

Deadlines for production are Noon Fridays, so we have the time to produce the news. If you have a late breaking story that urgently needs to go to air, send us an email and we'll attempt to accommodate you.

Production Material

If you have a story you'd like to see on the news you can supply it either in text form and a member of the News Team will read it out on your behalf, but we encourage Amateurs to send us their stories as Audio Files, best format is 256kBit MP3 in glorious mono. Audacity is the tool we use and recommend as it runs under Windows, OS X and Linux. We offer a course on producing material for broadcast which includes learning how to write an audio script, recording the audio and editing the result.

Live Broadcast

Live on air broadcasts of the news are difficult to achieve due to the varied times that the news goes to air.  We could, however, for special occasions, record the news or news segments live to go to air at a later time.
