About MUST Radio

The main focus of MUST radio is community amalgamation and students are a big part of the community apart from ethnic groups and migrants. More than 50% of the staff and participation are community members. Women form about 75% of the team. Most of them are working, others are housewives and about 25% of them come from the local slums in Kalina, Kurla, Nehru Nagar and Dharavi. With the help of the Mass Communication Department and Colleges like Kapila Khandwala College of Education we have been able to produce programmes for the slum children in particular. With the help of local bank branches we have started special programmes regarding micro finance and banking for women. Many schools have been visiting the radio station on regular basis thus paving the way for children programmes made by the various radio clubs formed in the respective schools. Children from local orphanages have been producing programmes in various languages at the radio station. Various NGOs use the radio platform to reach out to the community and spread awareness about various issues ranging from health, citizen rights, etc.

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.
