With a range of inviting incentives to reward it’s loyal followers, RDUnited returns at a time where community means more than anything for Christchurch.

“Innovation has been a key part of our operation,” claims station director James Meharry. “With the changing landscape in Christchurch and the difficulties we have all faced in the last 18 months, we have worked from laptops in the hills, programme directors bedrooms and even now, from the back of a horse float to ensure RDU98.5FM continues to break through the blur of commercial radio. We will stop at nothing to continue broadcasting.”

RDU is a local, independent radio station, driven by, and for the community of Christchurch. For 36 years they have brought a varied and diverse broadcast with the ethos of choosing content over commercialism.

“We retain these values, while working as a “not for profit” model with every dollar we make being spent on improving the station, and ultimately what we give our listeners” continues Meharry.
