It’s our voice – Join the campaign to save regional media.

Local media is the voice of regional and rural Australia. But our media laws are stuck in the last century, and it’s affecting the amount of local news and content regional Australians see and hear on their TV and radio every day.

These services will continue to decline unless we update the laws to ensure a strong regional media, and a stronger voice for regional and rural Australia.
