Community Communication: The Journey of Radyo Tacunan

Abstract / Excerpt:

This paper describes the experiences of Tacunan residents in running a Community Public Address System particularly the trials and triumphs of Tacunan rural folks in setting up their organizational structure and in operating this community radio. This article also describes the benefits that the residents gained from operating this facility, specifically technology transfer, travels, training opportunities and development and progress in their barangay. This paper, moreover, probes into the facility's sustainability amidst the rapidly changing landscape of Tacunan and the younger generation's waning interest toward this community radio. This paper recommends the reorganization, review of policies, retooling, reestablishment of ties with partner agencies and resource mobilization for its sustainable operation.
