What is Community Radio?
Community radio stations are non-profit social enterprises, run for, and by, the community. It offers anyone and everyone the opportunity to get involved with radio, whether it is creating their own radio show, helping with background production, or developing their skills in the journalism side of a radio station. The purpose of a community radio station is to serve the community, to provide this access to radio involvement, but also to deliver local radio that can freely broadcast content and music for the community, rather than a target market, particularly as commercial stations are increasingly consolidated by large media corporations.
