Serving the Nation’s community radio stations since 1975.

Why Community Media?

Whether it is local journalism, storytelling, live events, music discovery, or the exploration of cultural nuance and meaning, NFCB member broadcasters provide a nexus where community life and civic life meet and interact at the local level. Local community media is people powered and it helps communities thrive.
