Commit to Community Radio Campaign on the 7.30 Report

enadmin, 11th March 2013

The ABC's 7.30 Report State editions in Victoria and Queensland have recently reported on the Commit to Community Radio Campaign.

The Victorian edition of the 7.30 Report is available here.

The Queensland edition of the 7.30 Report is available here.

Commit to Community Radio is a campaign promoting a strong digital future for our community broadcasters.

The future of free-to-air broadcasting is digital - but for community radio stations, that future is now at risk.

Unless the Federal Government commits to giving digital community radio a future in the upcoming budget, vital digital community radio stations will be switched off.

You can support the Commit to Community Radio campaign here.
