The “Jobs and growth” Federal budget includes $1.4m p.a. funding cut for community radio stations, which puts broadcasting on digital at risk in 5 capital cities. 

On the other hand, the government is keen to tackle youth unemployment by introducing a new internship program.

Community radio has long been a training ground for young content producers and aspiring journalists. 

 Reporter Yuzuha Oka spoke to some of the media professionals who started off at SYN about the skills they learned and how they got their foot in the door.

Guests:

Nat Tencic  Triple J, unearthed, Double J radio

Alex Darling: Southerncross Austereo

Sally Whyte: Crikey, President of SYN Media
