Visited the studios of QBN FM 96.7 on Wednesday 21st January 2015 during Ron Coffey's breakfast program to announce that he will present a much needed funding grant of $35000. This grant will refurbish studio 2 and replace badly needed existing equipment.

The surveys provide valuable feedback to the community broadcasting sector and local community stations about trends, listeners and the sector itself.

The 2013 survey is the sixth survey the community broadcasting sector has undertaken and the first in the new semi-annual (that's twice a year, folks!) format. The results indicate a consistent, strong and dedicated community radio audience, in the face of a rapidly changing media environment and increased listening options.

The 2013 National Listener Survey results are here! Conducted by McNair Ingenuity, the 2013 results show the increasing development in the community broadcasting sector's listener base.
