Two organisations in the electorate of Lyons have secured funding under Round 1 of the Albanese Labor Government’s Community Broadcasting Program.
Tasman Community Broadcasters in Nubeena has received $14,040 and TYGA Community Radio in New Norfolk has been awarded $10,910.
Lyons federal MP Brian Mitchell said he was delighted the community stations had been awarded the funds.
“The Albanese Labor government is committed to supporting the important role of Community Broadcasters, particularly throughout regional Australia,” Mr Mitchell said.
“Community broadcasters operate at the heart of local communities, with staff and volunteers working to deliver local news, tell local stories, and provide a platform for emerging Australian music and artists.”
Nationwide, Round 1 of the Community Broadcasting Program delivered more than $9.5 million across 235 applicants, with 7 Tasmanian broadcasters sharing $196,782.
