2YYY Supporting the National Cherry Festival


This year your local community radio station is really getting behind The National Cherry Festival. Over the weekend from the 1st to 3rd December we will have extensive coverage of Young’s premier annual event. This will range from a live broadcast of the Cherry Festival Rodeo to live reports from nearly all the major events. We will also be having a float in the street parade.

It will be all hands on deck for all our great volunteers who will report on events live back to the station.

Our major event will be a live broadcast from 5pm Saturday of the Cherry Festival Rodeo. This is happening near the Young Racecourse with the entrance from Milly Milly Lane.


The National Cherry Festival Rodeo will be a big event for Young and the Cherry Festival. Our broadcast team of Chris Edwards and Jacob Sutherland will broadcast from 5 pm till the last event on Saturday night the 2nd December. They will also have a number of guests to join in the fun live and give us some further expert comments.  We will be there for all the action and will include crosses back to the station to  bring people up to date on other events. Bonnie and the team will also play some great rodeo and Australian country music to put you in the mood. We have had great support from the Young community on not only the rodeo but everyone has really got behind this events and others.
