The Reality Check Radio (‘RCR’) team made the announcement on 17 March, and provided more details on accessibility and content.
Anticipation and excitement is high following RCR’s initial reveal two weeks ago. The station will feature Paul Brennan, Rodney Hide, Chantelle Baker and Peter Williams to begin with, with more content and shows in pipeline.
The station will first air tomorrow Monday 20 March 2023.
In a video posted to YouTube the team provided more details about the platform’s content and how to access it.
‘We’re really looking forward to getting our teeth into a whole range of issues that have been off the table for so long,’ said Brennan.
‘There have been so many issues that we have not been able to talk about that we’ll be getting into. Issues like climate, co-governance, the COVID response, food and supply chain issues, finances, gender, censorship, education, wokeism and health – and that’s just off the top of the head, there will be so much more.’
How to listen to RCR
Brennan also addressed questions from the public about accessing RCR’s content.
RCR does not have a radio frequency, but listeners can stream the station live on their mobiles or computers and listen wherever broadband and data are available.
Replays will be available for download direct to devices. ‘You can listen in the car, on a run, while at work – everywhere.’
‘Are we going to be live 24/7? Our launch will be in stages. At first we’ll have regular daily and weekly shows and segments that you can pop into your diary to tune in and listen live. Replays of the shows will also be available on our site. We’ll be adding more hosts, programmes and content as we go along and already have some exciting names and shows in the pipeline.
‘Finally you’ve also been asking about talk back, texting and other options for sharing your views with us. We are really looking forward to hearing your opinions. Make sure you’re signed up at www.realitycheck.radio to be the first to hear about news and updates as they happen, including talk back, and more.’
