Plains FM 96.9

Broadcast opportunities for children, youth, disabled, minorities, not-for-profits. Participatory media gives all a voice.


Plains FM provides media opportunities for not-for-profit groups and organisations to have a voice on air. Children, youth, people with disabilities, newcomers and kiwi-born alike learn broadcast skills and share their stories, cultures, views, ideas, promote their activities and connect to the Canterbury community.

With 120 programmes in 20 languages we know many more people would engage with us if we can keep costs to a minimum.
