Helping to lift the voice of the west

When all parties truly understand each other, they are in a position to form productive partnerships. This is the approach we adopt at all our sites and this is why Mobil was so pleased to be able to contribute to the voice of western Melbourne, Stereo 974.

Operated by Western Radio Broadcasters Inc, Stereo 974, is one of the longest Established Community Broadcasters in Victoria.

Staffed by more than 130 volunteers, it operates 24 hours a day 7 days a week, and provides a high standard of broadcasting to an extremely diverse cultural and linguistic audience within our community. As an Official Emergency Broadcaster it also provides vital information to the broad community in emergencies.

Mobil has contributed towards a technical upgrade to the broadcaster’s main transmitter site, including coaxial cabling, antennas and associate works.

“Maintaining open lines of communications is so important to building strong communities,” said Mobil Altona Refinery Manager Riccardo Cavallo. “We continuously work to stay in touch with our communities through our regular community bulletins and meetings, by keeping neighbours informed of significant developments at sites, ensuring there are procedures for people to acquire information or provide feedback, and by sponsoring and getting involved in community organisations like Stereo 974.

“I congratulate the volunteers at Stereo 974 for providing an excellent voice for Melbourne’s west.”
