The Wire

The Wire in 2018

Monday to Friday 5.30am - 6.00am

Monday to Thursday 1.00pm - 1.30pm

The Wire is a daily current affairs program broadcast on Community and Indigenous radio stations around Australia.

The Wire is available via the Community Radio Network satellite and the CAAMA Radio satellite to more than 160 stations in areas ranging from city to regional to remote Indigenous communities.

The Wire takes an independent approach to current issues, guided by our Editorial Policy. We offer critical coverage, which challenges all points of view, puts issues and events in context and always asks 'why'.

Our audience is as diverse as the community radio sector - reaching a unique range of communities across the country. Over 5 million people across Australia can tune into The Wire any weekday.

The Wire Current Affairs program is produced by a consortium of progressive community broadcasters shared between Sydney and Adelaide during the week and in Brisbane on Fridays.
