About Danae Gibson

My first love is radio and I am the Talks Producer at RTRFM 92.1. From 2014 - 2017 I coordinated the Broadcast Journalism Diploma course at Swinburne University of Technology in Melbourne. From 2012-2015 I loved my role as Diversity Programming Coordinator at SYN Media. I moved to Melbourne to take on the GM role at LGBTI community radio station JOY 94.9 in 2009 and for many years before that I enjoyed program making, training and more at Perth's Sound Alternative RTRFM 92.1.
