This is a time of change for PBS: we’ve got our new studios, a new transmission site, new broadcast technology, and a new General Manager. This Strategic Plan seeks to take stock of those changes and to anticipate a future in which we remain a vital, dynamic, and a much-loved part of Melbourne’s cultural landscape.

Our vision to support and amplify a thriving local music scene stretches beyond radio and opens the door to new and creative ways to share music and the stories behind it. By nurturing our existing services and carefully expanding into new ones, we will continue to create opportunities for Australian musicians to have their music heard and introduce audiences to curated music programming that they are unlikely to find anywhere else.

We are very fortunate to have such incredible support in the community, and such a stable foundation to work from. All the work, from thousands of volunteers and staff, over the past 40-something years, has led to this. We’ve got a solid foundation - let’s launch some rockets!
