Conduct an Audience Survey of Community Radio Listeners.

[A Study on the radio listeners, living 17 Community Radio Stations Areas in Bangladesh]

 

Overview of survey:

Bangladesh NGOs Network for Radio and Communication (BNNRC) is a National Networking organization working on Community Media for Building a Democratic Society based on the Principles of Free Flow of Information, Equitable and Affordable Access to Information & Communication Technology (ICT) for remote and marginalized population. For the last couple of years BNNRC is working to develop the capacity and strength of community media sector by initiating different types of programs.

As result 17 Community Radio station is on air and 16 New CRS are waiting for on air. Currently 17 Community Radio Stations are on-air in the country, aiming to ensure empowerment and right to information for the rural community. They are broadcasting altogether 135 hours program per day on information, education, local entertainment and development motivation activities. Around 1000 Youth Women & Youth are now working with those Stations throughout the country as rural broadcasters. 17 community radio stations presently cover more than 6.18 million listeners of 115 upazilla of 29 districts (partial). For their outstanding contributions and efforts, the CR Broadcasters have received various national, international and local awards for developing creative radio programs. As a result, the communities living in these radio   coverage areas are getting information to overcome their voice and information poverty and they have started to concern about their socio-cultural rights and raise voices in this regard. Community Radios now have considered as one of the vital tool for achieving Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) along with other development agendas.

At the beginning, before broadcasting community radio programs, BNNRC carried out a baseline of survey in 2009 for addressing the communities need and expectation from their respective CRSs, which included 1000 sample respondents randomly selected from various upazilas in 10 districts of Bangladesh (14 CRSs got license from the government during this survey). Basing on this survey, all CRSs, later produced and broadcast programs in line with their respondent’s preferred content and formats including listening time.

Since community radio is audience-oriented, the radio stations should be familiar with its stakeholders and be able to identify who they really are. Lack of assessing about the audience needs in CRSs areas is a barrier for effective promotion of community radio or media of the country.

Survey Objectives:

Specifically, the assessment of this proposed survey will be considered into the following issues:

  • Audience opinions on the Community Radio Station as well as its broadcast programs (quality, content, format, and impact of the radio programs)
  • Verify whether the existing program contents are in line with their (respected communities) live and livelihood supports.
  • Identify the people’s expectations from community radio programs as well as the gaps to be used in further improvement of the formats and contents of radio programs in line with the research findings and recommendations.

Study Areas:

The study area will cover 17 Community Radio Station operational areas in Bangladesh.

Duration of the Assessment:

The entire process of audience survey, including preparation of the report will be completed by 31 st October 2017.
