About Vision National News

Our world is driven by news. In fact, entire networks are now devoted to pumping out the latest stories 24 hours a day! While keeping up with the latest news is important, at Vision radio we take a slightly different tack. We believe in selecting appropriate stories that are filtered through the Christian worldview — that means leaving some stuff out and adding other stories (that you won't find on mainstream news) in.

We provide Australia's only nationwide Christian worldview news service. Heard hourly each weekday plus Saturday mornings.

Since 2001, Vision's news team have gained a reputation for being a trusted source of information — a place you can get the facts without sensationalism or gruesome details found in many other services.

It’s all the news that matters - yet is safe for every member of the family to listen to. Our team of industry experienced professionals draws on years with ABC, commercial and community broadcasters, and they’re passionate about news!
