About

ANU Student Media is the Association that encompasses WoroniWoroni Radio and Woroni TV.

Woroni has been the ANU student newspaper since 1950, Woroni Radio was established in 2012 and Woroni TV was launched in 2017. We are committed to:

  • producing interesting, entertaining, informative and regular content across our print, multimedia, radio and online media platforms;
  • contributing to a sense of university identity and reflecting the scholarly and cultural diversity of the ANU community;
  • promoting open public dialogue and debate in the ANU community;
  • promoting awareness of the variety of curricular and extra-curricular activities undertaken by students at ANU;
  • discovering and developing the creative talents of students at ANU in journalism and the media arts;
  • promoting the best practice in professional journalism; and
  • being innovative and exploring new media forms.

A great student media organisation is for everyone. Student media should promote conversations, and provide a platform for people with different views, identities and lived experiences.

Out ultimate aim is to build a culture of inclusivity and diversity across our platforms.

Freedom of speech, indeed, the power of speech, is that which amplifies the voices of the meek so that they can be heard alongside the mighty.

A large portion of ANU’s students relocate to Canberra to study, which means our community is extremely diverse. Because ANU Student Media is funded by, created by and consumed by ANU students, and our mission is to produce print, radio and television content that truly reflects this community. This means supporting our regular contributors and those who are vocal on campus, as well as actively seeking out those who have been traditionally sidelined, or who need a boost of confidence to share their story.

We know that when you open our newspaper, tune into our radio broadcast, or watch our videos, that you might not agree with what you read, hear or see. Good. That is the point.

ANU ­– and the world – would be a boring place if everyone had the same opinions, identities and experiences.

Note: There is a line, and we do not hesitate to draw it. We do not approve content that is offensive or discriminatory.

We do, however, try to push students out of their comfort zones and expose them to the kaleidoscope of brilliantly contrasting identities, beliefs, political views and faiths held by those that they walk past on campus every day.

That is what we do. That is what we stand for.
