Parallel Session 2: Building Sustainable ‘Small’ Radio and TV Stations

‘Small’ radio and TV stations are increasingly playing a pivotal role in informing and educating the public in many developing countries in Asia-Pacific. Given limited resources and competition, they seek ways to build and sustain their operations. Is there one-size-fits all strategy to achieve this goal? What business models and programming strategies can they pursue? Will tapping mobile and the web make a difference?
