Local media needs your help. Lending your voice to the debate will help us to save the trusted voices of regional Australia.
Ask your local federal member of parliament what they are doing personally to support a sustainable, independent and self-funding local media presence in regional Australia.
- Ask if they are aware that media regulations are seriously disadvantaging local news media.
- Ask if they want their local newspaper, television or radio news bulletin to disappear on their watch.
- Ask if they are prepared to sit idly by while the real voices of our communities wither and die.
While you’re at it, please consider buying a print or digital subscription to your local newspaper, or taking out an advertisement. If you’re a business owner, please consider the power of the airwaves and printed pages that you have at your fingertips. And when you buy a product that has been advertised on TV, radio or a newspaper, please be sure to tell the retailer where you heard about their product.
Together we can save our voices, but we have to act now.
Because regional Australians won’t know what they have lost until it is gone.
