About Radio Manipal

We have constituted an Advisory committee wherein representatives are drawn from NGOs, KVKs, senior citizens association, cultural organisations like Sangeeth Sabha, Yakshagana Kalakendra, Artists Forum, elected representatives, Community Health Department of KMC, Innovation Centre, IT and Centre for Rural Studies, Agricultural Research Station in Manipal. Representatives from fishermen community, Mahila Okkota are also included. The meetings are held every six months and programmes broadcast are reviewed. The role of community radio in empowering people with information and its importance is brought to the notice of local organisations like Rotary Club, NSS Volunteers, SHG Members and Gram Panchayat members by attending their meetings with brief presentations. We had successfully conducted two-day workshops at three different colleges on capacity building. They are given first hand information on writing and presenting radio scripts. Lecture demonstrations are held during NSS Camps. The opinion of the listeners about the radio programmes are recorded and aired. It is felt that in order to make it more people oriented we have to organise meetings at short intervals and at their own meeting place.

Signature Programme:
The signature programme of CRS Radio Manipal is Vikasa, a programme on self sustenance and improving quality of life. Developmental activities in Udupi district has led to urbanisation and people are leaving their traditional occupations. This has created a vacuum in rural area with shortfall of workforce. With few hands left in farming, cultivable lands are being used for non agricultural industrial purposes. To address this problem, Radio Manipal has mounted a series of programmes with the help of KVK, Brahmavara and SKDRDP, Dharmasthala (NGO) giving information on farm mechanisation, agro-processing, value addition, marketing, animal husbandry, soil conservation and water management. Technology along with farmers' experiences is shared in this series. These programmes, recorded in the field, are broadcast without any financial assistance.

Community media is any form of media that is created and controlled by a community, either a geographic community or a community of identity or interest. However, if the fundamental premise of the media is to engage those groups that are categorically excluded and marginalized from the media-making process, it will be included on this website, even if it is not explicitly created and controlled by the community.
