Very interesting presentation on the ambiguities of ‘sustainabilty’ in the media development sphere, thank you very much to both of you. You present the radio stations as business units with different sources of income. You mention the sums paid by the owners to support the radio but not the share they take, sometimes considering "their" media as a source of profit above all else. Have you noted similarities and differences in this respect in the two countries you studied and to what extent is it a hindrance to sustainability?

You may need to adjust your audio settings or rejoin. That’s really strange, apologies for the inconvenience Eric

Kennedy/Mary: And the more support you have from the audience, and the better connected - and trusted - you are locally, the better you can - carefully and step-by-step push the boundaries for free speech. Have seen wonderful examples of this (and I am sure you are aware of it :-) )

Absolutely, Nicola - and this is, as far as i know, also what MISA is working intensely on in Zambia at the moment !

Many thanks for your insightful research and presentation. Your findings reflect similar challenges local radio face accross much of sub-Saharan Africa.
