Above all, 5EBI is made of people.
However small their role may be, whether they are volunteers or paid staff, all who contribute to the station’s operations are Station Workers. They are the lifeblood of 5EBI 103.1FM.
There are over 200 Station Workers at 5EBI, too many to list here!
The vast majority of 5EBI Station Workers are volunteers. Our Executive Committee, the member groups’ Radio Committees, our presenters, producers, Continuity Producers and trainers are all volunteers, as well as other helpers in other areas such as reception or CD library.
5EBI currently has six staff, whose mission is to serve and manage our large community of volunteers.

Continuity Producers (CPs)
CPs have an important role at 5EBI. They ensure the continuity of 5EBI’s on air sound and that programmes run seamlessly from one to the other. At any given time outside of our nightime World Trax programming (which is automated), a CP is at the helm of 5EBI’s broadcast. CPs may panel (drive the equipment) for volunteers who produce and present a programme but cannot (or prefer not to) operate the desk themselves.
These skilled and dedicated volunteers are not only responsible for the station’s on-air sound, they also act as Duty Manager after hours and when the Station Manager is not available.
5EBI is the only community radio station in Australia to provide such outstanding service to its members.
