Book on radio journalism

Kathmandu, February 22:

Martin Chautari, a research-oriented organisation today released a book on the community FM radio of the country — “Radio Journalism: News and Dialogue in FM”.

Addressing a discussion, Dhruba Hari Adhikari, chairman of Nepal Press Institution, said the book is rich in information about the past and present of the decade-old FM radio journalism and provides comprehensive knowledge about the self-evolving tradition, which is fast becoming truly professional. He also added that the book, however, is short on editing and also bears some factual errors.

Articles in the book highlight the struggle by radio journalists to establish FM stations in the country, situation of news broadcasting by FM stations and the critical situation that the FM stations have had to face after the political change of February 1.
