Why community radio?


Community radio stations offer numerous benefits to communities. One key advantage is local representation. Stations like DG9 Radio provide a platform for local voices to be heard, representing the diversity of the community, including different cultures, languages, and perspectives, which might not be covered by mainstream media.

Community radio supports community engagement by involving local residents in programming. This involvement creates a sense of community ownership and connection to the content being broadcast. Additionally, DG9 radio serves as a hub for promoting local events, businesses, and initiatives, often providing free or low-cost advertising opportunities that help boost local economies and cultural activities.

Also, community radio fills gaps in mainstream media coverage by providing essential information and resources to residents. This includes updates on local news, weather, traffic, and community services, particularly in areas where access to such information may be limited.

Many community radio stations offer training and educational programs in media production and broadcasting, We are no differant and we are creating and adding to our training academy. This empowers members of the community with valuable skills and provides opportunities for personal and professional development.

Culturally, community radio plays a pivotal role in preserving and promoting local traditions, music, language, and folklore, particularly in regions like Dumfries & Galloway, Wigtownshire in specific, with rich cultural heritage. Lastly DG9 Radio can give a voice to marginalised or underrepresented groups within society, addressing issues of social justice, diversity, and inclusion, and promoting understanding.

 How do we do it all, well….. we need you, the community to be involved.
