Listener Information

Every week, across Ireland, 2000 Community radio volunteers engage with an estimated 170,000 listeners in 20 fully licensed stations and 30 aspirant stations at different stages of development. Community Radio is a rapidly growing broadcasting sector and a force for community development, identity, and expression.

Community Radio offers:

  • rare and direct media access for all perspectives in our communities,
  • the potential for innovation inherent in non-profit,community owned and operated media
  • diversity in the provision of programming, especially where there would be insufficient profit for the commercial sector and too much cost for the public service sector.
  • offers a resurgence of local media highlighting local issues,opinions and voices in contrast to mainstream medias increasingly centralised content production.
  • the skills, resources and the opportunity to understand media by members of our communities through actively participating in its creation and delivery.
  • a unique mechanism to engage with social exclusion by acting as a vehicle for outcome-driven personal and professional training and development
  • a powerful tool in providing services and supports to communities, especially disadvantaged and excluded communities.
  • the opportunity to promote democracy, human rights and the environment.
  • a challenge to global media blandness in reinforcing local identities while acting as a catalyst for integration and inclusion.
