Explaining the Value and Need For Community Media

MARY LENNON, manager of Athlone Community Radio and chairperson of CRAOL chats to Noel McGuinness.

Athlone Community Radio was formed in 2006 as a steering group comprised of individuals from a number of community organisations who saw that a community radio station would serve the interests of their clients and the general public of Athlone and its environs.

Athlone Community Radio Ltd aims to operate a Community Radio Station for the benefit of the community of Athlone which aims to entertain, engage and inform its listenership. Its activities and programming are based on community ownership, access and participation, and aims to reflect the special interests and needs of this community, in line with the community ethos of the BAI licence and the AMARC charter.
