Today Radio Monash announces that Aleks Djukic has officially resigned from her position as 2017 Station President effective 19th of April 2017
The following statement was provided by Djukic, explaining the reasoning for her resignation and thanking both the 2017 Committee and member base for their support:
It is with a heavy heart that I announce my resignation as President of Radio Monash. Due to health complications, I will no longer be able to fulfill the requirements needed to undertake this responsibility.
Since my term began in November of last year, I have been blown away by the continual hard work and dedication of my committee; from the AACTA awards, to the renovations of the space, to a reinvigorated broadcast grid and an incredible online presence. I am eternally grateful to all those who have contributed to the life of Radio Monash during my presidency.
While I am regretful of the fact that I will not be able to fulfill the full 12 month term, I am thankful for the understanding of my team and the community during this difficult time.
Luka Janicijevic, current Vice President and Production Manager, will be stepping up to the role of President in the interim and I trust that with his reinvigorated vision for Radio Monash, that our community will continue to grow, thrive and make an impression within Monash University and beyond.
My presidency will officially cease next Wednesday the 19th of April. Until then, business as usual. My inbox is always open for inquiries.
I’d like to extend a warm welcome on behalf of Radio Monash’s news team to the new face of News Live – Brana Godic!

You’ll be able to enjoy zany new guest speakers, interesting new topics, and a distinctly less adversarial news show that I can absolutely guarantee will be interesting, delightful, witty and fascinating!

Perth natives Methyl Ethel recently exploded with popularity as their 2016 debut album “Oh Inhuman Spectacle” propelled them into fame, producing triple J favourites such as “Rogues”, and the ninety-seventh place in the Hottest-100-of-2015 tune, “Twilight Driving”. After being signed to 4AD records amongst the ranks of Future Islands, and Purity Ring and completing a US tour, the band returned to their home soil to promote and reveal previously unheard songs to be featured on their follow-up album “Everything Is Forgotten” for a show at Brunswick’s The Howler. Supported by similarly dream-pop bands, Quivers and Totally Mild, the night was sure to be a laid-back evening of unique art-pop. Read more …
