The Wujal Wujal RIBS is possibly one of the most important communication tools for isolated remote indigenous communities. TodayÌ¢âÂã¢s technology has allowed us to access tools and applications mainstream media have enjoyed for many years.
Announcers are trained in radio skills and developing appropriate radio program materials, access to broadcasting services and support. Emphasis is on broadcasting development within community by way of production of appropriate radio and other media material.
Wujal Wujal RIBS will soon be networked with other RIBS in Far North Queensland and national networks to broadcast relevant culturally specific material.
The broadcasters are skilled with the qualifications of a Certificate 4 or Certificate 4 in Remote Indigenous Community Broadcasting.
This network is vital to Cape York communities as a communication tool and announcers keep the local community informed across the local and other communities.
