Sharply reduced state aid to local radio, community and minority radio.
The poor must give to the rich. A successful initiative by the DAB lobby.
Despite strong protests from the local radio community, the rules for state aid to local radio changed dramatically by a decision of the Ministry of Culture. Half of the aid that previously earmarked for program production and minority radio will now be earmarked for a transition to DAB radio. Also state support to the local radio federation has been reduced by two thirds.
