A mainstay on Desert Rock FM 96.5, Clancy Overell and Errol Parker, editors of the explicitly raw but iconic Outback Australian newspaper known as The Betoota Advocate have been bringing the news to the residents of the town for years.

Recorded in the Koala Studios at Desert Rock, the weekly dissection of the Australian zeitgeist with high profile Australian guests has topped the ratings in the Diamantina Shire consistently. Reporting fiercely, without fear or favour, the two editors cover a healthy mix of local, national and international news.

After the success of taking the Advocate online in late 2014, the editors agreed to Murray Watson’s request, (our producer at Desert Rock) to drive the show into the brave new world of podcasts.

Murray has also facilitated the transformation of our News Bulletins on Desert Rock into podcast format. Released weekly, the News Bulletin is a quick wrap up of news around the shire, the country and the world as reported in the Betoota Advocate.
