Bhutanese-run radio program bags excellence award


A weekly Nepali language radio program, Yuba Sansar, operated by resettled Bhutanese youths in South Australia, was awarded the ‘multicultural youth program of the year 2012’, Sunday.

Given by the National Ethnic and Multicultural Broadcasters’ Council every year, the award is regarded as the highest national honor on multicultural broadcasters.

“Yuba Sansar was awarded for its clarity, focus and appeal to the Bhutanese youth community, and showing creativity in presenting their topics combined with their natural and comfortable rapport and confident broadcasting skills,” Indra Adhikari, one of the program presenters, reported in

A group of seven resettled youths from Adelaide have been running the radio program every Sunday on behalf of the Bhutanese Association of South Australia since February this year. The program is funded by Multicultural Youth South Australia.
