How does Mix102.3 measure its audience?
Official surveys are carried out by Nielson Media Research. NMR conducts surveys for all the capital city radio stations in Australia, the results of which are released eight times a year. Survey results play a significant part in the sales and programming of a radio station. Commercial radio is a business, and therefore growth is based on revenue generated by advertising. If a station is rating well, clients will more likely buy advertising space on that station.
Is it hard to get a job in radio?
Because there are only so many stations in any given market, opportunities are highly sought after. But while you're waiting for that lucky break, there are several ways you can receive training such as through AFTRS’s and local Radio Training Schools.
Who decides on what goes to air?
The Program Director is responsible for everything you hear on the air. For instance, the talk topics, the presenters, the sound of the news and what competitions/promotions the station is involved in. (We also work to The ACMA’s Codes and Standards to maintain high standards within the communities we serve.)
How can I contact one of your on-air personalities?
The simplest way to contact our our on-air personalities is via Facebook. You can find links to their pages in the Shows Menu.

Does Mix102.3 offer work experience for students?
Every week we get many requests from students requesting work experience with Mix102.3. Unfortunately, due to work place laws and insurance implications, we can no longer offer work experience.
What about group/school tours?
Group tours of our studio facilities are popular and in some cases are booked many weeks in advance. For more information and to check availability, please call (08) 8300 1000 during business hours.
Does Mix102.3 do lost and found pet calls or stolen property reports?
Because we receive hundreds of these calls every week, it is not possible to broadcast each one. Mix102.3 advises stolen property be reported to the Police as soon as possible.
When I call Mix102.3, why does the producer tell me not to ask the hosts, "How are you doing?"
In a typical show, lots of people phone in – and many ask this question. Usually, they're just fine. If they aren't, believe us, you'll hear about it without having to ask.
Is there another number to call if the studio line is engaged?
Sometimes when there is a hot issue or popular contents our phone lines become jammed. If you hear an engaged signal when you call we ask that you are patient and try again later.
Why do I have to turn down my radio when I call Mix102.3?
When you listen to Mix102.3 on the radio, you are hearing a "delayed" signal. That means that what you are hearing actually happened a few seconds ago. If a caller is talking on the air and listening to the radio at the same time, not only does it create confusion between what's "live" and what's "delayed," but it also creates feedback.

Why do you seem to play the same songs all the time?
Almost every music-based station in the world has defined a target audience and researched the music that is best-loved by this target market. This defines the initial playlist and after that there’s a lot of “variety” content added to keep it fresh. We never get complaints from people saying we play their favorite song too often, but we sometimes do about the ones they don’t like (which might be someone else’s favorite song!). We go to a lot of effort to minimize repetition issues, and welcome feedback on this.
If I call the studio, will I be put to air?
Not necessarily, but while we seek permission, all callers to an on-air studio should have an expectation that their comments may be broadcast – either live or delayed.
Can I get a tape of something off-air?
We do not provide this service, except under court orders for The Police or ACMA.
What do I do if I have a complaint?
Please call the station first and the receptionist will direct you to the right person. Complaints need to be made in writing and addressed to the General Manager (or person in charge), but a quick call first will help you gather the right information and check the details of how to proceed.
Is Mix102.3 part of some kind of industry body?
Yes, we’re part of Commercial Radio Australia – and at their web site you will learn more about the Australian Radio Industry and developments like Digital Radio.
