In 2013 8CCC Tennant Creek was launched. This event was the culmination of several years collaboration and planning between Barkly Regional Arts, 8CCC and CAAMA Radio. The studio is now fully equipped with state-of-the- art digital recording and broadcasting equipment which operates from the BRA / WMC precinct.
8CCC’s Mission is to involve and support the Tennant Creek and Alice Springs communities with services, programming and content that is not readily available in the commercial broadcasting arena. 8CCC is a community-run radio station that works to promote and foster a community and multicultural voice through the electronic media. 8CCC Community Radio aims to enrich people’s lives with a diversity of programs and services that inform, educate and entertain.
There are a number of programs currently airing from Tennant Creek including: ‘Good Morning the Barkly’ by Ktima Heathcote. ‘Rhythm stick’ by Peter Davenport, ‘What’s Up Winanjjikari’ by the Winanjjikari Music Centre team, and ‘Warumungu Children’s Language Program’ by Rosemary Plummer and Kathy Burns
