Browsing Radios Top

If you wish to find Radios of a certain type, we've made it easy by dividing them into 'categories' of Australian States and Territories. To browse Radios within a state/territory, simply use the menu bar to the left where you will find a list of available category types. Click on any of the headings to explore available sub-categories and the directory of matching Radios.

To narrow this search, please use the 'Distribution Area' field as explained below. (See under 'Searching Radios')

Searching Radios Top
Below you will find some explanations for the search fields available in the Radio search.
Station Name:

if you know the name of the radio station you require information about, simply type the name or a part of the name (see 'Search Tips' for further information) in the 'Station Name' field and press Search. Results will be displayed immediately - simply click on the radio station name or logo image to view the full record.

From here you can view that radio station's full entry to find information such as contact details, a general description, radio and broadcast type, call signs, and program information.

Broadcaster Name:if you are unsure of the exact name of a radio station but you know the broadcaster, use the 'Broadcaster Name' field. Enter either the whole or part name and press search. Search results will contain any Radios that have broadcasters matching your search. Click the Radio station's title or logo image to view the Radio's entry, or click the broadcaster name to view the entry for the broadcaster.
 Radio Search Fields
 the search fields and filters available for Radios
Description:if you are looking for a radio station or range of stations which contain something specific, you can choose to use the 'Description' field. Type in a search term such as 'talk' for all radio stations containing variations of the word 'talk' in the radio station's general description. For information on how to make this feature more efficient, including using multiple search values and 'search characters', see 'Advanced Searching'.
Readership Desc:if you are looking for a particular audience, for example, youth, use the 'readership desc' field. The readership field contains information such as a radio stations target audience and demographic information and will return a list of any stations that match your search. To further narrow your search, try one of the 'Advanced Searching' techniques.
Call Sign:if you know the call sign or part call sign, enter it in the 'Call sign' search field to view all matching radio stations. This can be used with a name or part name search to help you refine your results. It may be used with any other search feature.
Frequency:this allows you to narrow your search of radio stations by their transmission frequencies. The 'Frequency' search field allows alpha-numeric entry. This means you can search using a number (eg 99.1, or simply 99 if you are not sure), or letters (such as MHz). The advantage of the 'Frequency' fields lies in allowing you to search for a 'KHz' frequency which is actually on a FM station. ( Some stations are classified as 'FM' but may broadcast on one AM, or KHz frequency in a rural area) The 'Frequency' search can be used with any other field to refine results.
Radio Type:this list allows you to target radio stations by the categories 'commercial', 'community' or 'government'. Choosing one of these and searching will list all radio stations falling into that particular 'Radio Type'.
Broadcast Type:this list allows you to find radio stations depending on their 'Broadcast Type' - that is either 'AM', 'FM' or 'Digital'.

Radio Contact Search Top

Radio Contacts SearchThe contact search returns a list of contact information for key personnel associated specifically with Radio stations. Type in the name or part name of a Radio station or Radio station's broadcaster to view contact information for staff members. If you know the first name, surname or email address of a specific person you can use that to search for contacts without knowing which Radio station they work for.

To search for a list of personnel of a particular type, use the position search to return all matching editors or advertising managers for example. From here you can also create a list of names specific to your needs. (see 'Help - Lists')

Radio Directory Listing Top

All RadioThe 'All Radio' link in the left hand menu displays all available radio stations broken down alphabetically. Simply select the first letter/character of the radio station you are after in the drop down list to view a list of all corresponding radio stations. The number in parentheses next to each letter indicates the number of titles that match.

Radio Lists Top

Radio contact listsThe 'Lists' feature enables you to create a list of publication specific to your needs (see 'Create Lists'). However, to enable users to save time, mediadirectory.com.au have taken the most requested information and pre-made Lists for them.

To access these Lists, use the left hand menu 'Download Lists' link. The lists are divided into three main groupings, content and editors, sales and advertising and executives and managers. The lists are created by combining the most commonly used search terms of Media Directory users.
