6:30PM Wednesday, 1 May 2019

In the media, and particularly in the lead up to an election, we hear a lot from politicians about policy, law reform, and general political debate. And while it’s vital to connect your community with your political representatives, community broadcasters equally have a vital role to play in ensuring people affected by policy have their voices heard on-air.

How can you reach people in your community and those from marginal groups to discuss the issues affecting them?

In this webinar, you’ll learn from community radio broadcasters and content experts:
  • Why it’s important to represent your community on-air in political discussion
  • How to consider who the best person to speak on an issue may be
  • Tips for finding and connecting with people from marginal communities
  • Find resources and national experts

Abstract
The largest pressure faced by community radio stations is financial. Stations constantly face the reality of how to ensure an adequate operating income in an increasingly competitive mediascape. Van Vuuren (2006c) argues that the extent of the contribution of community media to media democracy in Australia depends largely on how the sector manages commercial pressures. There is a need to ensure more financial stability to allow stations to focus on their primary community-orientated and participatory goals.
