We are thrilled to welcome Lisa McLean and Cameron Paine, to our Development & Operations Grants Advisory Committee (DOGAC).

Our newest DOGAC members bring a wealth of skills, experience and life-long passion for community media to the committee.  As leaders from the community broadcasting sector, they will assist the DOGAC in providing independent advice on how Development & Operations Grants should be distributed and help to shape funding policy.

Lisa McLean

Lisa McLean is the Operations Manager at Indigenous Community Television (ICTV) in Mparntwe/Alice Springs.  She was previously the Community Television Operations Manager at Channel 31 and Community Radio/National Radio News Station Manager at 2MCE from 2018 – 2021.  Lisa has a deep love for community broadcasting across radio and television, which harks back to tuning into the early days of 3RRR in the mid-70s.  Two long careers in the public service and higher education have led her to a third stage of working life in community broadcasting – surprising not only herself but her family who reckon this is the coolest job their mum has ever had!   Lisa loves playing video games, op-shopping and regular hikes around Arranda Country.

Cameron Paine

Cameron Paine is the Technology Manager at Triple R and has been the Chair of the Melbourne Digital Representative Company since 2009.  He was previously the Technical Manager at 3MBS Fine Music and was made an Honorary Life Member at 3PBS for his early volunteer efforts during the establishment of the station.   Cameron is also a former member of our Sector Investment Advisory Committee (SIAC) where he served for a maximum three terms (2016-2023) as an original member since the committee’s inception.  We are excited to continue working with Cameron on the DOGAC!

Our amazing volunteers sit at the heart of what we do at the CBF and our vision for community broadcasting to be at the heart of every community.   We extend a warm welcome to Lisa & Cameron and look forward to working closely with them!
