Podcast #162 – The Future of Community Radio, Live from Grassroots Radio Conference

What will community radio sound like in 2023? Will the death of net neutrality make radio even important? Will analog FM radio even exist anymore?

Two active and insightful community media activists joins us to tackle these questions and more, live from 2018 Grassroots Radio Conference held in the Native American Student & Community Center at Portland State University, in Portland, Oregon. Vanessa Maria Graber is the station manager for WPPM-LP at public access TV station PhillyCam in Philadelphia, PA. Ernesto Aguilar is the Program Director for the National Federation of Community Broadcasters.

Together we discuss the skills that today’s new broadcasters will need in the next five years, real-world tactics for engaging your community and recruiting fresh voices, and the challenges posed by the monopoly power of large telecom companies.

Radio Survivor is a listener-supported podcast. You can support us two ways: Make a monthly contribution through our Patreon campaign. Make a one-time or recurring donation with any major credit card via PayPal.
