Just last year Malama was invited to Canberra to attend the ANZAC Centenary Art Exhibition. This is where Malama met the Ambassador of Greece to Australia and art curator Eva T Dafaranos.
The exhibition ‘Lemnos – The Greek Dimension in the Anzac Centenary highlighted a historic milestone for Australia and New Zealand. Malama was honoured to see the amazing Art Exhibition featuring Lemnos where her parents originated from. Listeners will also remember the 90 second Anzac Segments that Malama researched, wrote and produced that were played across the radio station programs last year that were well received by our listeners.
Malama is also on our Board of Directors and is the Editor Chief for the quarterly WOW-FM Newsletter where she enjoys researching the stories and bringing them to our readers.

Malama is very grateful to work at WOW FM over the past 8 years which has allowed her to share her 40 years’ (to be celebrated 2017) experience on a community radio station and the tools she has learnt by the radio conferences she attends and to work with wonderful people like the current team and leaders Adolfo Gonzalas and Dr Bill Gayed.
