    This 83-page report by FEW Media explores the sustainability of Namibian community radio and television stations with regard to ownership, finances, production, audience, policies, and administration.
    According to the report, the sustainability of community stations in Namibia remains precarious. It suggests that community broadcasts are worth sustaining because they address the specific needs of a particular community in a way that no other broadcaster does.

    The report makes a large number of recommendations to improve community stations’ sustainability. It is an interesting read for professionals in the field; the recommendations should be highly useful for community radio stations across the continent.
