Community MHz: Assessing Community Radio Performance in Nepal- A Pilot Assessment of 15 Stations
PDF File Size: 1.07 MB | Download   
Independent FM radio is fairly recent in Nepal. The first few radios were established in the mid-1990s. Most of them were licensed and established after 2006. Until late August 2011, the government had issued 393 licenses. The licensees include non-government organizations (NGOs), cooperatives, local government bodies, commercial entities and the state-run broadcaster. Nepal still lacks a comprehensive law on broadcasting, despite specific guarantees for broadcasting in the Interim Constitution 2007. Following a brief overview of radio in Nepal, this report provides an overview of the CR-PAS and the assessment process. Thereafter, it reports on the findings and analysis both of all the radios that were assessed and also of individual stations, leading to conclusions and recommendations.
