RPP FM local radio have announced the launch of a new current affairs radio program on Tuesday, 29 March 2016 at 12noon.

The half hour program, called Eye on the Peninsula will be presented by Piers Cunningham and produced by Debra Mar. The program will cover local current affairs, developing stories, live crosses and breaking news across Mornington Peninsula communities.

Station Manager, Mr Brendon Telfer said, “It’s all about the peninsula and our talented team who will be able to tell important local stories and give them ‘voice’ – we don’t want to rely on the big news agencies defining our part of the world. And I’m very proud that RPP FM is the first sub-metro community station to be embarking on this bold program initiative.”

Executive producer of Eye on the Peninsula, Debra Mar said, “There is a demand for audio representation of current affairs on the peninsula. The program has enormous potential to inform and update local communities with exclusive stories, breaking news and the latest developments on issues that matter to people across the peninsula.  We are excited.”

“Our team of reporters bring a high level of expertise and journalistic knowledge to the program.”

The Eye on the Peninsula team want to know what is happening on the peninsula. They are encouraging individuals, communities, businesses and organisations to contact RPP FM on 5975 1234 with their ‘News on the Street’.

Eye on the Peninsula. 98.7FM & 98.3FM Frankston.
