RFO and Radio Australia sign program sharing aggreement

The exchange of news and information across the Pacific is to be enhanced following a co-operation agreement between French global network RFO and Radio Australia. Under the three year deal, RFO Radio News Caledonia and Radio Australia have started sharing news and information programmes in French.
Listeners in New Caledonia, Wallis and Futuna and Tahiti can hear the latest Pacific news via the “24 Hours in the Pacific” program, a French language news service prepared by Radio Australia and broadcast on RFO News Caledonia, each morning and afternoon. The program will also be heard on Radio Vanuatu.
The agreement will enhance coverage of major events including the forthcoming Pacific Games in Western Samoa.
