MVFM Strengthens Youth Focus

THE MEANDER Valley FM radio station has a stronger youth focus with Seb Stanley volunteering for 2014. 


The 15-year-old Deloraine High School student will bring a diverse range of skills and knowledge to the community radio station. 


Seb will work in presenting, production and as a liaison with the student body at DHS under the experienced tutelage of people including Nick Weare and Marion Curtain.  


As a member of the Student Executive Council at DHS Seb is well placed to convey the attitudes and concerns of the young members of the Meander Valley Community. 


MVFM President, Lionel Walters, said the success of the station has been built on the efforts of all its members and the interest from the younger demographic will only strengthen it further. 


“In a volunteer organisation, everybody's contribution is appreciated, but it's especially exciting to see young people giving their time and energy to worthwhile community initiatives,” Mr Walters said. 

“Community radio is a great place to develop and practice skills that can be used in the workplace.  


“Already I can see that Seb's willingness to learn and participate will stand him in good stead for the future.” 


Seb’s interested in journalism was piqued at a young age and coupled with wanting to be more involved with the community he joined MVFM. 


“I joined the radio station because I feel like I need to be more involved with the community,” Seb said. 


“I've always loved Tintin, and when I was younger the only thing I could see myself growing up to do is become a reporter, albeit one that escapes capture and shoots up bad guys.”
