We are Radio Southland 96.4 FM – Southland’s only locally-owned, community access radio station. This means that anyone in the community can have a voice on-air and online.

We broadcast on 96.4FM in Southland, New Zealand – but we also live stream continuously through this website and have a wide range of podcasts of our shows here too – it’s like radio’s version of TV on Demand!

Radio Southland is here to give our diverse community a voice, so if you are part of a group or organisation that promotes our community or various interests then we’re here to help.

We also provide the opportunity for people who have always wanted to “give radio a go” to live their dreams. It’s really easy to make radio – come and see our staff for a tour and a chat and we’ll show you how you could make it happen too.

We are part of an Access Media Network, and a member of the Community Access Media Alliance (CAMA). NZ on Air assists Access stations financially, with the expectation that we ensure that a range of broadcasts is available to provide for the interests of women, youth, children, persons with disabilities and minorities in the community, including ethnic minorities” (Section 36(c) of the Act).

We are to “encourage a range of broadcasts that reflects the diverse religious and ethical beliefs of New Zealanders.”
