Get to know TuneFM
What is TuneFM?
TuneFM is not your average radio station. It’s UNE’s very own student-powered radio station, operating on-site in Armidale, Australia, and run by a dedicated team of UNE students. But TuneFM is more than just a radio station; it’s a dynamic platform that keeps the UNE community connected, informed, and entertained.
A Rich History and a Bright Future
TuneFM is proud to be Australia’s oldest university broadcaster, with its roots dating back to April 1970. Over the years, it has evolved to become a hub for expression, community engagement, and hands-on learning opportunities for students, both on-campus and online.
Today, TuneFM is at the forefront of constructive journalism, focusing on campus events, bridging the gap between students and the local community, and collaborating with Newshub to provide national news coverage. We interview experts on current events, expand our coverage, and keep our listeners well-informed.
Opportunities for Students
If you passionate about radio, eager to discuss global topics, and excited about sharing great music? TuneFM offers unique opportunities for students who want to get involved and learn. Our student volunteer positions are not your typical volunteer roles; we’re all about helping you develop the skills and experience needed for your dream career.
As a TuneFM volunteer, you can expect to:
- Receive Training: Learn the ropes of on-air announcements and broadcasting.
- Create Content: Contribute to our vibrant social media presence and write articles for our active blog and NewsHub
- Explore Podcasting: Gain the skills to create and potentially host your own podcast.
At TuneFM, we’re dedicated to nurturing job-ready professionals. We provide support and training to help you grow, boost your confidence, and develop a unique skill set. Your experience with us will be flexible and tailored to align with your interests, goals, and availability. By volunteering with TuneFM, you’ll not only graduate with a degree but also with a resume that sets you apart from the crowd. Our volunteers often find themselves more confident in their speaking abilities and well-equipped to summarize complex topics effectively.
“As a volunteer, I find both news and science stories to summarise and report on. I also voice track in the studio and give important updates. In this role, I have become more confident in my speaking abilities and I have learnt how to summarise a lot more effectively.” – Jay, TuneFM volunteer
