Community Radio is coming to Conche May 9 – 10. Make sure to tune in to 105.9 FM.
The French Shore
Cultural Centre will be hosting this awesome event and they are asking everyone who has a connection to Conche to call into the centre on those two days.
Community radio stations
broadcast content that is popular and relevant to a local audience with specific interests, which is often overlooked by commercial or mass-media
broadcasters as they really focus on mainstream and urban-oriented activities. They tend to rely on advertising funds, whereas community radio is non-profit, run typically from a group of volunteers.
Community radio stations are driven by the communities they serve. It is an enabler for those members to tell their own diverse stories, to share experiences, and be creators. Rural Newfoundland & Labrador
has talent and we will continue to be players in the ever-changing world we live as we adapt to varying forms of media. I commend the French Shore Cultural Centre for undertaking this initiative and bringing temporary community radio to the French Shore.
As always, Live Rural NL –
