Many topics have been covered:

News from Cambodia

News in New Zealand

News in our Cambodian community

News in Religion

Interviews: prerecording, studio interviews, live phone interviews/talkback

Issues: Health Information, public safety, Educational system in New Zealand, Tax system, ACC.. etc

And Khmer Music.

As “Samleng Khmer” is run as an independent radio, we were able to speak out on many issues in our community, which otherwise would be ignored if we were controlled by various Cambodian associations and it is a significant achievement.

In the last twelve months the program content has been very consistent and aligned with its set out mission statements,

The quality of the program has improved greatly due to the fundings received from COGS Community Grant, Lottery Grant and ASB Community Trust Grant and We are grateful to NZ On Air for funding the Community Radio Station Planet104.6FM.

Even though the program is only 1hour 5 minute long, it involves a lot of preparation: translation of many articles from English to Cambodian, gathering news from internet, getting guests to be on the radio show, … and the weekly trip to the radio station in Auckland can be very exhausting.

The program has been on air every week on time for the last 10 years due to the hard work of our volunteers who put in many hours to make this radio show possible. We believe very strongly that the Cambodian radio is a very useful, powerful and important tool to help Cambodian people to settle in New Zealand, to integrate into NZ way of life, and to feel less alienated and less isolated.

How many people are listening to the radio program?

According to our research report by Jan Vaudrey, carried out in 2001, people were primarily listening for information, entertainment, company and to improve their English (English lessons).

And our radio program is run with these intentions in mind.

There are around 2500 Cambodians living here in Auckland; many are new settlers.

We believe, as it is in our 10th year, that our radio program is now well known. We managed to put our radio promotions on The Bulletin and the Calendar of the Auckland Cambodian Buddhist association which are widely distributed to the Cambodian people in Auckland for free.
