Come and visit your local Community Access station! You can look around the studios, listen to archival broadcasts and try your voice out on radio.

Wellington Access Radio is the station that’s by, for and about our community. We’re a non-profit, grass roots organisation that celebrates all things Wellington.

We provide a media platform for groups whose voices aren’t usually heard on mainstream radio. This includes ethnic, sexual and religious minorities, children, youth and the disabled. We also broadcast to special interest groups- like those who enjoy world music, animal welfare, health information, social justice and much more. Separately those groups are minorities but if you’ve got them all together listening to one radio station they form a very large group!

Wellington Access Radio was the first established community access radio station in NZ and has been on the air since April 1981. We broadcast over 80 programmes in more than 25 different languages. We stream and podcast our programmes and our frequency can be heard from Taupo to Blenheim.

Because we’re a non commercial radio station our priorities are vastly different to most radio stations. We measure success not on audience size alone but rather in the quality and diversity of the audience. We are however, very proud of our online statistics- in 2011 we had over 140, 000 active podcast downloads and live streams.

We survive financially through the continuous support of New Zealand on Air and through our small broadcasting and membership fees.
