|Digital connections: a survey of Australian ethnic community broadcasting - preliminary report||672.06 KB|
This report presents the results of a national survey into ethnic community broadcasting stations around Australia. The survey was conducted online in English throughout 2022, and was open to station managers, ethnic program coordinators at generalist community radio stations, programmers, and ethnic community broadcasters. It examines the experience of respondents at some of the full-time ethnic stations, alongside those ethnic programs that sit within a broader, more generalist station. It includes stations in both urban, metropolitan, and regional/rural areas. In this sense, it is a true indication of how ethnic community broadcasting is operating across the full range of the Australian community broadcasting sector.
The survey was conducted as part of a larger 12-month research project supported by the NEMBC (through funding provided from the Community Broadcasting Foundation, CBF) and Griffith University. It is a mixed quantitative and qualitative study, comprised of the survey focused upon in this report, and accompanying interviews and audience focus groups.
