The Committee of Management, Presenters, Volunteers and Members of Radio Eastern FM 98.1 are deeply saddened at the passing of our esteemed colleague and friend Peter McArthur.
Peter was a tireless advocate for our station, community broadcasting and the eastern region of Melbourne having been heavily involved in the original submission to obtain a community broadcasting license in 1991.
Peter was a true gentlemen and highly respected by us all and he was committed to the service of the community in a number of capacities having served as a local councillor, Mayor and Member of Parliament. Peter brought a great deal of experience to Radio Eastern as a former professional radio announcer. He always had time for younger aspiring broadcasters and insisted on preserving the integrity of community content.
We will forever be in his debt for the many years of service contributed. We are all richer for having known Peter.
May he Rest In Peace.
