King Island Community Radio 100.5 FM

King Island Radio 100.5FM is a mirror reflecting the essence of King Island and serves the community:

We see KICR as a vital resource - for building and sustaining our isolated Bass Strait island community; in times of emergency; airing locally relevant information and entertainment to listeners; being independent through serving the community; for promotion of the King Island brand and lifestyle. A place of opportunity, beauty and environment.


King Island Radio 100.5 FM offers the King Island community and visitors localised community radio fulfilling needs which are not met by commercial or government radio broadcasting.
We provide locally-produced content and a voice to the King Island community that is immediately relevant and meaningful to their daily lives.
We allow and encourage individuals or groups to participate in producing their own programs and to maintain and reflect our local culture.
We provide basic media training for participation in all aspects of running a radio station from scheduling and producing programs to administration and fundraising.
