Community Radio Model

More than audio outlets, volunteer-based community radio stations are cultural institutions in their communities, reflecting the unique concerns and passions of the people who live there. With a system based on openness and collaboration, and diverse programming produced by volunteers and funded by listeners, these stations are cornerstones of participatory democracy, offering ordinary citizens the chance to exercise First Amendment rights in a mass medium and audiences the opportunity to directly support the programming that is of interest to them.

-Mission Statement, Grassroots Radio Coalition

Our mission statement goes to the heart of what we are about. A global coalition of community broadcasters, producers, volunteers, activists, and community members, we are unified in our commitment to the “community” in community radio, encouraging openness and accountability in governance, as well as programming.

Community radio is made when local people produce and broadcast their own programs and participate in operating the station.


We depend on volunteers to reach our goal of broadcasting quality programming.
