ABC Radio National reporter Amanda Smith was at the Kinglake Memorial Reserve on Australia Day (Sun., Jan. 26) to assemble a report for the Sporty program due to go to air at 10.30am on Saturday (Feb. 1).
Ms Smith wanted to enquire about the value of sport in the community recovery since the 2009 ‘Black Saturday’ fires.
Ms Smith interviewed Kinglake sporting identity Chris Hamer whilst the Kinglake Football and Kinglake Cricket teams played a social match on Australia Day afternoon.
Also interviewed was Ash Long, Editor of the Melbourne Observer, which also publishes The Local Paper, the region’s leading sports newspaper and online service.
