I’ve a new piece out, with Salvatore Scifo, in the International Journal of Communication, about community television. It focuses on what Hallin and Mancini call the ‘Liberal North Atlantic’ region – USA, Canada, Ireland, and the UK – and provides an overview of the state of the field, along with the various opportunities and challenges facing it. (Thanks to Karen Arriaza Ibarra of Complutense University in Madrid, and the IAMCR International Communication section, for the opportunity.)

Online panel on community radio in the UK and Ireland
I got to co-moderate a panel on community radio in the UK and Ireland this week, with my colleague Salvatore Scifo from Bournemouth University. The panel was organised by Prof Vinod Pavarala, UNESCO Chair in Community Media at the University of Hyderabad, as part of their Global Dialogues series. The video is now available for on-demand viewing.
Sustainable community media
The second of two issues of the Journal of Alternative and Community Media which I guest-edited with Salvatore Scifo is now online. Proud to have collaborated on stewarding this to completion, and of all the amazing contributions we were honoured to include. (Sorry also for the many we couldn’t include, despite being afforded the luxury of two issues.)
Our first issue was 4(4), while the second is 5(1), the first issue of the journal at its new home with Intellect. You may be interested in the editorials we wrote for the first and second of these issues:
