The HFL Media crew hasn’t even finished its first season of HFL coverage yet, and we’re already kicking goals. Well, this may be more of a behind, but we’re still on the scoreboard.
Our community broadcasting partner, Lofty Community Media, won the runner-up award at the 2018 SACBA Bilby Awards for Best Sports Coverage. SACBA, or the South Australian Community Broadcasters Association, is the peak body for community broadcasting in SA. There are over 30 member organisations in SACBA, so to come second in our first year is a huge honour.
With Lofty firing up its FM transmissions later this year, maybe we’ll kick a bit straighter next year as live and local footy returns to the airwaves in 2019.
Collecting this Bilby is Tony “The Colonel” Sander. The rest of the HFL Media crew let him out of the techno kitchen for a bit to go and receive the prize. Note The Colonel’s winter coat, which is at its most bushy at this time of year.
