Radio Adelaide

ACMA has approved the transfer of the Radio Adelaide community broadcasting license to independent body, Educational Broadcasters Adelaide Incorporated. Twelve months ago, the University of Adelaide called for expressions of interest from suitable applicants to take over the license it had held since 1975. SACBA has kept a watching brief on the unprecedented process since, monitoring how developments could impact on the wider community broadcasting sector across the state. The latest news is a major achievement for Radio Adelaide in what has been a controversial process. The station has been tasked by the ACMA to develop a community consultation strategy and a structured engagement program by March 2017. SACBA is keen to support Radio Adelaide to build an independent station model that complements the variety and balance of community broadcasting in South Australia.
