The purpose of of the Board of Directors is to guide the organisation into a future of profitability, stability and ensure that the organisation is meeting its core objectives. Meet the Board members below:
Terry Bin Busu
Skin name , Jungala, I grew up in Kununurra. My Mother’s tribe is Gija and father is from Wave Hill. My sister is Miriwoong through mother’s marriage to her father.
I became involved with Waringarri Media since it’s inception in the early 80s and since then has grown to see the various changes within this organisation. I am proud of the opportunity to be chairman at Waringarri Media and the experience has been worth the while. I love all kinds of music but my personal favourite is country music.
Mentoring children and re- engaging them with the Kununurra community , I work in the role of a child care provider with the Department of child protection group home in Kununurra. A position I have held for 2 years now. I am loving my job as I am able to impact some knowledge into our future generation.
I was born in the Kimberley’s and grew up in Sydney where I finished my schooling. I am a Miriwoong woman and they call me Yuma. I like to travel, garden, fish, paint and enjoy the great outdoors. I have four beautiful and successful children and four just as equally awesome and beautiful grandchildren.
My passions over the years have varied with vast experience in Tenancy, Security, Hospitality, Retail, Wholesale, Business, Horticulture, Knowledge of flora and fauna (in this region), Teacher, Trainer, Cleaner and just in general and overall fixer upper kind of person.
I looked forward to joining Waringarri Media’s board this year 2014 as I’ve had a fascinating interest in the world of media and had heard that new members to the board would be welcomed as it would greatly benefit our local station and our community, so as the opportunity opened up a position on the board I volunteered.
I hope to see Waringarri Radio continue to thrive into the new year, with continued community support and guidance I can see our station achieving more in the future than we could ever imagine.
My name is Ann-Maree Scott Virtue, locally known as Anna Wilson. I am a Miriwoong woman and my skin name is Nungari.
I enjoy volunteering my time, playing softball and attending community events. Presently I am vice president of the Kununurra Softball Association and I am on the fundraising committee at work.
I wanted to be a part of Waringarri media ever since early March 2013, when I took some casual work with Waringarri radio whilst waiting for my current job to open up in May 2013. I then attended Waringarri’s AGM later that year and was nominated for a position on the board. I joined Waringarri Media’s board end of 2013 ready for 2014.
I hear Waringarri Radio is reaching more and more listeners every day and hope to see it really reach its potential and have everyone listening to our station. I would really like to see more indigenous people from my community becominginvolved in the media sector as it can open so many opportunities.
I have so far enjoyed being a small part of such a big organisation and I hope that my input, time and commitment will benefit my community and encourage more like minded young indigenous people like myself to become involved.
I am a local traditional owner of the Miriwoong tribe. I work with Wunan Foundation as a Team Leader-Money Business. I enjoy listening to country and pop music.
I got involved with Waringarri radio in December,2015 and enjoying so far.
What I love about the Kimberley region is its beauty and ruggedness. I think it is really unique.
I am from Derby Western Australia. I grew up in West and East Kimberley. I am currently working in Wunan Foundation in Money Management.
I love music and particularly Jazz. Got the opportunity to get involved with 6WR in December 2015.
Best thing for me living in Kimberley is the nature, environment, and its country style.
