Agitate Educate Organise. The roles of information-based programming on 4ZzZ.
Community radio in Australia, and community media in general, has recieved increased attention from academics in recent years. Forde et al (2002) highlight the need for further study into news and current affairs programming in the community broadcasting sector, saying they are keen to discover more about its format and content, especially in terms of the attitudes and practices of information-based program producers. This paper clarifies some of these issues by outlining the results of a case study of information-based programming on Brisbane community radio 4ZzZ and adopting a modified citizen's media framework.
