The Informer is a news and current affairs show on JOY 94.9 bringing issues facing the LGBTIQ communities to the forefront.

The Informer Daily is a daily current affair show covering news and information about the COVID-19 situation with a focus on how it’s impacting the LGBTIQA+ community. It’s an evolution of The Informer, JOY 94.9’s award-winning weekly current affairs show.

Melbourne, Australia – Monday, 23 March 2020 – As of today, The Informer Daily will broadcast nationally across Australia on the Community Radio Network at 15:00 AEST Monday-Friday and online at 18:00 AEST at JOY.ORG.AU, on the 94.9 FM frequency in Melbourne and mobile apps IHeart Radio and TuneIn.
The Informer Daily will also be available on podcast format every weekday afternoon at JOY.ORG.AU.
JOY 94.9 CEO, Ange Barry praised the effort, “right now more than ever, independent community media has a critical role to play in keeping people connected and informed, and JOY is proud to provide the Community Radio Network with this special Informer Daily Programming“.
I would like to thank the Community Broadcasting Foundation, as our funding partner who has enabled The JOY Informer team to create award-winning content and to respond quickly to the current Coronavirus situation by bringing the Australian community, free, daily, accurate and informative updates“, Barry added.
The Informer Daily Executive Producer, Arion Potts commented, “not a lot of outlets cover LGBTIQA+ issues in-depth on a regular basis, with The Informer Daily we want to change this. While the show has content for everyone, we’re including regular information, like advice for people with HIV, safe sex with COVID-19 and more – things that are really relevant to the queer community“.
