Learn more about the Community Radio Sector

The newly released State of the Community Radio Sector Report brings together a range of data sources to provide insights into Australia’s largest independent media sector, a key pillar in local broadcasting and internationally recognised example of grassroots media – community broadcasting.

It shows the sector’s important contribution to the diversity,
inclusiveness and social cohesion that characterises Australia’s open
society and reinforces its cultural vibrancy by:

  • Providing a voice to communities not adequately served by other broadcasters.
  • Giving a platform to a diverse range of viewpoints that enrich our social and cultural fabric and promote media diversity.
  • Providing social inclusion, local community participation and media access in the public interest.
  • Supporting local content production and delivering content tailored to the needs and interest of local communities.

This report encompasses data for a period of significant success and
ongoing challenges. With more stations and listeners than ever, it is
evident that community radio remains ever important to Australians and
provides services that address identified community needs and interests.
