Jo Curtin

Chief Executive Officer

Jo’s commitment to social justice, inclusion and authentic human connection has led to a life-long passion for community media.

Jo leads a team of 10 staff and over 160 volunteers who support community broadcasters across the country to share stories and culture with their local communities.

She started her career in community broadcasting at youth station SYN Media, where she became Station Manager after completing her media degree. She later worked as Assistant Manager at 3ZZZ and has also served on the Board of the Community Broadcasting Association of Australia.

“Community broadcasting is the heartbeat of our local communities and critical to our cultural landscape as a nation. I’ve seen the transformative power of community media firsthand – how it creates a more inclusive, engaged and cohesive society where we connect and share stories. And that’s the kind of world I want to live in!”
