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.
