Help #keepcommunityradio funding in 2016

unnamedAn important message from the Community Broadcasting Association of Australia:

The Federal Budget has failed to maintain funding for metropolitan community digital radio services in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth and Adelaide. The CBAA has launched a campaign to show just how much support there is for our sector and how important it is to secure our digital future.

The Federal Budget contains cuts of $1.4 million p.a., funding that currently keeps community radio stations broadcasting on digital in 5 capital cities. Community radio’s standing alongside public and commercial broadcasters is at risk.

Please, sign here and make sure your friends know about it so they can sign it too.
In the midst of a very close election campaign I believe we can turn this funding shortfall around, but the only thing that will make a difference is you, and everyone who cares about the future of community radio.

Keep the Community in Your Radio by adding your voice.
