Last night the Federal Government failed to deliver the $1.4 million per annum of funding needed to keep all of our community digital radio services running.
The CBAA is seeking urgent talks with Minister Stephen Conroy to discuss the implications of the budget and options for the future of community digital radio.
We would like to thank all those who have supported the Commit to Community Radio campaign. Over 42,000 people signed up to the campaign thus far and thousands of emails have been sent directly to Communications Minister Stephen Conroy, the Treasurer, the Minister for Finance and other MPs across the country.
The campaign is by no means over and we will continue to fight for a digital future for our community broadcasting services.
The most recent media release from the campaign is available here.
