I Heard it on the Radio: Shifting our Gaze to the Digital Realm with Floyd Doyle and Marcellus Enalangae

April 17 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Navigating the digital era through broadcast, creative podcasts and journalism, are two multi-disciplinary creatives. Join TV presenter Marcellus Enalanga and media veteran Floyd Doyle as they discuss the challenges, cultural loads and passion for amplifying generational stories.

Kabbi -Kabbi/Meriam man Floyd Doyle began his media career in 1989 as a trainee broadcaster with Central Australian Aboriginal Media Association (CAAMA) radio. Hailing from the Sunshine Coast in Queensland, he was part of the ABC’s first intake of Indigenous cadets. He worked for ABC Radio and Triple J in Queensland before returning to Mparntwe (Alice Springs) to share his newfound skills and knowledge with local trainees. The veteran broadcaster made a welcome return to CAAMA in 2023, bringing listeners news and entertainment on the breakfast shift.

Marcellus Enalanga is a Western Arrernte, Pitjantjatjara, and Warlpiri filmmaker, TV presenter and public speaker from Mparntwe (Alice Springs). During his studies of screen and media at the Batchelor Institute of Indigenous Tertiary Education he was approached by NASA (National Aeronautics and Space Administration) to provide a short video on how they “observe the moon” in the Western Arrernte language. Previous projects include being Cultural Producer on Dipped in Black, a multi-disciplinary film and photographic art project, and a host and reporter for Mob Talks, a First Nations focused talk show. Recently completing a journalism cadetship with SBS and NITV News, Marcellus plans to present the news.
