About TSIMA Radio 4MW

TSIMA Radio 4MW’s mission is to connect the voices and culture of the Torres Strait through media.

Tune in to hear local news, enthralling interviews and coverage of cultural, sporting or historical events. Enjoy a variety of music from traditional and contemporary Torres Strait Islander songs to Reggae, Pacific and PNG beats. We also play charting hits as well as classic pop and rock.

TSIMA Radio 4MW is a 24-hour radio service operated by Torres Strait Islanders Media Association (TSIMA).  Established in 1985, Radio4MW broadcasts on 1260AM and airs across Zenadth Kes (Torres Strait), the Northern Peninsula Area and as far north as the Western Province of Papua New Guinea.  Radio 4MW also streams live on this website and on mobile devices through Radio 4MW’s app on iTunes or Google Play.

TSIMA currently holds six of the fourteen RIBS licenses for the Torres Strait region; Prouma, Warraber, Iama, Erub, Mabuiag and Badu. The other RIBS licenses are held by TSIRC. RIBS stations allow broadcasters from the outer islands to live stream and operate a radio broadcast. Learn more about RIBs.
