News and current affairs
Vaiola and Mahe are putting together nearly two hours weekly of valuable health information for women and elders, of interviews with Tongan leaders, community notices, news and music plus lessons in Tongan as a first language. With a deep love of their culture and language the hosts offer a rich source of education and inspiration.
Siosateki and Vasilini are active radio listeners for information and entertainment, so that’s what they and their team are offering on Fanongo ki Tonga. With news, music, interviews with community members, and discussion of hobbies and sport they’re keen to give Tongans entertaining radio. Community bulletins and a short devotion round out the show for late night listeners.
Produced by the Tongan Women's Association this show began in 1987 with the focus on Early Childhood Education. It has grown to include many Tongan community interests. The old and new mix of Tongan music is popular as are the education updates, health information, positive parenting segments, local and Canberra news bulletins. A short devotion opens each 2 hour programme.
