Doug keen to meet the challenge at Beechworth

Indigo FM Beechworth has a new Site Co-ordinator with Doug Wallen stepping into the role in early January.

“I’m honoured to take on the role of Site Co-ordinator for Beechworth. I’ve loved being involved with Indigo FM since moving to the region two years ago, and I look forward to fostering more engagement with the community and welcoming more diverse voices to our local airwaves”, Wallen said.

Each Indigo FM site is co-ordinated by a volunteer Site Co-ordinator whose role is to connect and engage the local community and members / presenters as well as provide an important conduit to the Committee of Management and Sub-Committees.

President Scott Landells is excited with Wallen’s appointment. “Our Committee of Management are rapt that Doug has agreed to take on the role. It can be a challenging role at times, however we’re very confident that with the support of our off-air team and local members that Doug will add to the great work that has been contributed in previous years by the likes of Daniel Goonan and Mark Alcock”, Landells said.

Wallen has been an active contributor to Indigo FM’s Marketing and Events push these past couple of years, since joining as a presenter in early 2017.

As well as the off-air role, Wallen’s popular Waste The Alphabet show – which airs Tuesday nights from 7pm and shines a spotlight on Australian independent pop and rock tunes continues into its third year.

  1. Pleased to hear about your appointment Doug – I wish you well
    However it appears that one of the highest priorities for Indigo FM Beechworth continues to be the very limited number of people / community members who are able to receive the transmission
    I hope that Indigo FMs focus addresses this issue as a matter of urgency as currently it appears to be the greatest barrier to broad community enjoyment acceptance and support

    1. Thanks Ian for your message. Doug is aware of reception issues being experienced in some parts of Beechworth. He’ll be in touch to discuss your situation.

    2. I agree with Ian- most people can no longer tune in to Indigo FM since the move. We used to listen all the time and can’t pick it up any more .
      Good luck in your new role Doug 😀

      1. Thanks Ally. This issue has been identified as a high priority in Beechworth and we have several volunteers working on it as we speak. Doug will be in touch with you to discuss your situation.
