Our broadcasters are people like you!

Most have never presented a show behind the mic before we trained them up. We provide the facilities and the skills for you to do it yourself for the benefit of Canterbrians.

We aim to air information, discussion, diverse points of view, a range of interests and music by, for and about us - our stories, our voices every day.

Find out more at: or phone 365 7997. You can learn lots of great skills and get on air at very low cost thanks to the annual support of our core funder NZ On AIR .

That's what we love to do at Plains FM -  get local people trained up to be competent, confident community broadcasters. Our broadcasters come from all walks of life, represent all sorts of organisations (or not!), are a mix of ages, and have a wide variety of ideas and interests. Our broadcasters retain editorial control of their content and make the decisions on what they want to express and how they do that.

It's not free to broadcast on Plains FM as we are a not-for-profit organisation but it is cost effective! Staff give lots of support to get you going and to keep you going.

Currently we have over 65 programmes on air, broadcast in 13 languages. So if you have a germ of an idea and think you might like to have a chat about it - just give us a call on 365 7997.
