This handbook offers clear, accessible guidelines on: setting up, managing, and sustaining a community radio station. Operating a community radio station can be a daunting prospect. You may find that you suddenly need to become an expert in managing the station, programming, news, music, finances, marketing and sales, and many other activities. This manual shows you how important community radio is as a tool in social and economic transformation, and how it fills the gap between the public and commercial broadcasters, especially at grassroots level. This manual is an essential reference tool, and offers theoretical and concrete principles, which are invaluable to anyone involved in or wishing to be a part of community radio, and rebuilding civil society from the ground up.
