Great Southern FM powerhouse commended for broadcast room dedication and lifelong membership

Community radio powerhouses will be honored next week for his dedicated broadcast room and lifetime membership in Great Southern 100.9 FM.

Studio 2 at the station will be renamed to Ken Ewers-Verge Studio in honor of Ken Ewers-Verge, mounted outside the door, and will be announced at the next Thursday event.

Ewers-Verge has been volunteering at GSFM for 23 years and is a presenter, trainer, program manager, and chair of the governing board.

He has been at the station since the early days and has been working hard to maintain his presence on the air.

Julie Bright, current chair and presenter, said it was particularly helpful in setting up Studio 2.

“Around 2010, Ken started buying equipment and built Studio 2 from scratch,” Bright said. “Ken is now our technician and basically keeps broadcasting the station.

“He maintains not only the equipment at the station, but also the equipment at the mast at the top of Mount Clarence.”

Ms. Bright said she didn’t have time to slow down his drive to help the station.

“Ken is passionate about community radio and hasn’t lost this enthusiasm,” she said.

“In fact, he held an open day just a few weeks ago, and as a result, many new volunteers joined the station.”

Outside the broadcast room, Ewers-Verge also demonstrates his commitment to the community through collaboration with groups like Albany’s RSL.

“An example of amazing achievements and his commitment to the community was Ken’s past involvement in the RSL Anzac Dawn Service at the Desert Mounted Corps Memorial,” said Ms. Bright.
