Community Broadcasters
Station Logo

Access Manawatu is the Community Access radio station for Manawatu.

Access Manawatu exists to provide community broadcasting opportunities, facilities, support and training for individuals and organisations to create programmes that reflect their views and values.

Unlike commercial stations, we do not cater for a particular demographic, but instead cater to all in our transmission area, as well as encouraging all to participate in the creative process.

The station is owned on behalf of the community, and governed by the Manawatu Access Radio Charitable Trust.

We are keen to hear from anyone that wishes to broadcast, and especially from those that wish to broadcast about – or on behalf of – people in minority groups of any description. If you feel that your group, hobby, interest, faith or community (or anything else!) is not represented in the media or is not recognised as much as you want, then contact us.
