The Federal Budget released on Tuesday, 3 May, contains cuts of $1.4m p.a., funding that currently keeps community radio stations broadcasting on digital in 5 capital cities.
If we dont get those funds reinstated, community radio will get left behind on the AM/FM dial.
Were speaking up to let the Coalition and Labor know that, whoever wins government, we want the funding for community radio stations across the country reinstated.
Will you join the national community radio campaign to get these funds back? Add your voice here to the Keep the Community in Your Radio campaign!
Alongside a national campaign, we need to show Malcolm Turnbull and Bill Shorten thousands of names on this petition to make our political leaders sit up and listen.
We have thousands of listeners and many volunteers so I know 96five’s supporters can be a big part of stopping these cuts.
96Five is an important part of the Brisbane community. Were a community because were connected and one of the many ways in which were connected is through community radio.
As a supporter of 96five and as a member of our community I urge you to add your voice and share this petition and Keep the Community in Your Radio.
