ABC Shepparton celebrated their milestone 10th anniversary of broadcasting from the Wyndham Street studio during the week, along with their first stand alone Breakfast Program hosted by Matt Dowling.
ABC Goulburn Murray has been a dedicated broadcast service in the Goulburn Valley dating right back to its original set up as 2CO in 1931, but it wasn’t until 1992 that a permanent outpost was opened at 265A Maude Street (opposite the Fire Station).
In 2005 a new dedicated custom designed Studio was established at 50A Wyndham Street, with the first broadcast in October of that year cementing ABC Shepparton’s important role here in the Goulburn Valley.
Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC) Head of Regional Content, Cath Hurley said, “This is a fantastic location and there are wonderful stories to be told here. It’s a great team of broadcasters and we’re looking forward to telling more stories from Shepparton both locally and hopefully nationally as well.
“With the changing media scene we’re looking at digital technologies and other ways of getting the story out there in the community and celebrating the stories of Shepparton on a local and national level.
“Gaye and the team have done a fantastic job and Matt of course, he has been the person that you wake up with on the Breakfast Program for the last 10 years, which is very exciting. It’s a great milestone.
“It’s really important to acknowledge the whole team. It’s important to celebrate those in regional areas who contribute to their community and want to be a part of it.”
