Our community radio stations are at serious risk.
The Commission of Audit last week recommended that funding for the Community Broadcasting Program be scrapped.
The Government is set to hand down its Federal Budget on Tuesday. If the Government adopts the Commission of Audit’s recommendation in the budget, we could see community radio stations across the country forced off air.
Will you help protect our community radio stations by emailing the Treasurer now?
Take a minute right now to email the Treasurer Joe Hockey and tell him that our community radio stations are too important to be put on the scrap heap.
We know that community radio is an integral part of the Australian broadcasting landscape. Community radio provides vital content for so many different communities, especially Indigenous, ethnic, seniors, youth, the vision impaired, religious, and the arts communities.
We can’t afford to lose any of the stations who provide local content that commercial and public broadcasters can’t or won’t cater for.
Help protect our community radio stations by clicking www.committocommunityradio.org.au to email the Treasurer.
Thanks for your support,
President, Community Broadcasting Association of Australia
and the Commit to Community Radio team
