Accurate reporting

For over 35 years our reporters have delivered current and relevant news to people living and working in regional Australia. Our team uses the latest data and press releases from major rural groups, industry, and government bodies to paint an accurate picture of current agricultural affairs.


Daily updates

Our four news reports are produced daily and played by more than 150 radio stations throughout rural Australia.

Supporting our Aussie farmers and their communities puts a smile on our face.

“ARCN has had a lifelong experience in rural industries giving them an innate understanding of what is really going on. The other thing about ARCN is that they, like me, are independent.”
