ABC Sport and the
WKFA have been a part of the Kimberley social life since 1990.
Mike Wevers, "Butch" Chesson and Alan Bishop did the footy preview on Saturday
mornings from 9.30 until 10.00 and the Grand Final was broadcast
live in that same year from the Frederick Street oval. Alan Bishop
did a mighty job in solo broadcasting the 1992 WKFA V TIWI Island game. In 1993 ABC Radio was the proud medium carrying
the historic broadcast of the North Pilbara versus West Kimberley.
It is a tribute to the many sportsmen and women who have given
their time to be a part of the Saturday Sports Show and especially
to Pat Hagen who has always been behind the scenes making sure
things run smoothy. Finally, many thanks to the Regional Manager,
George Manning who is largely responsible for bringing the 'Sound
of the Kimberley' into people's daily lives.
