Community Radio Funding in the Federal Budget

Monday 18th May / presented by Kylie Sturgess

The federal budget is done and dusted and been dissected to death – but where does it leave community radio?

Community Broadcasting Association of Australia President, Adrian Basso, can answer this question quite simply: the sector hasn’t emerged well.

There is, he says, a continued pause on community sector funding via the Administered Program Indexation Pause. Essentially, this is a pause on funding for 112 programs (including community radio), for a further two years.

He’s also concerned about the protection of community journalists in the recently passed Data Retention Act, which saw just over $158 million allocated for its implementation.

Mr Basso joined Kylie Sturgess on The Mag.
