Youth run community broadcaster SYN Media has appointed 40 young volunteers to leadership positions that will take charge of the organisation in 2014.


SYN Media is growing up and moving into its first share house. The Melbourne youth community broadcaster has secured a new CBD co-working space with more media production and training opportunities for young Australians than ever before.


How is media convergence impacting on established, ‘broadcast-era’ community media? This paper takes SYN (a community radio licensee in Melbourne) as a case study and employs media ethnography and policy analysis to identify contemporary challenges facing community media.

Community media requires a different approach to convergence than that which is commonly associated with the professional creative industries. In the community sphere, convergence is led by members and encouraged through open, participative processes. The ‘open source organisation’ is proposed here as a useful way of thinking through the challenges of convergence and the limitations of Australia’s existing communications policy framework.
