Throughout July and August, the ABC is putting a special focus on stories and issues affecting Adelaide’s Northern Suburbs, with a ‘pop-up’ newsroom and live broadcasts from the area.

The joint news gathering and community engagement initiative will see reporters, presenters and program makers from ABC Radio Adelaide and ABC NEWS provide additional local coverage for ABC television, radio, online and social media.

It’s part of a program to drive more ABC local news and programming and provide a better voice to Adelaide’s diverse communities.

How can I get involved?
