Triple M’s Billy Bradley brings awareness to the drought crisis
Billy Bradley is bringing attention to the severe impact of the drought across Shepparton and the Goulburn Valley.
With many farmers in the area in a dire situation, the Triple M Shepparton announcer went to speak to a local farmer Chris Brooks to learn more about the drought crisis.
Farmer Chris is leading a class action against the Government over mismanagement of water, and Billy asked some serious questions to find out exactly what’s happening and what can be done to ease the pressure, if anything.
With many farmers struggling with mental health, Chris explains that he’s already lost mates.
“This issue is more important than ever in my listening audience and I feel strongly obligated to learn, report and communicate on air about it,” Billy tells Radio Today.
“I have been speaking to farmers all across the Goulburn Valley and they are united in their disgust at the various Government authorities who have made these terrible decisions that have seen so many farmers driven to sell their farms that have been in the family for generations and in some horrible cases commit suicide.”
Billy video has already racked up 1,250 shares and 35,000 views at the time of writing. Check it out below.
