The National Ethnic and Multicultural Broadcasters Council (NEMBC) on behalf of ethnic community broadcasters around Australia has won the prestigious Human Rights Commission’s: Racism. It Stops With Me Award. 6EBA 95.3FM and ethnic broadcasters contributed to the Award because of the major contribution that ethnic language radio programs play at the station.  Ethnic community broadcasting and indeed community broadcasting in Australia is unique. Nowhere else in the world is there such a depth, breadth and diversity of community media. News and information delivered on a local level to communities in cities and regional areas. So many individuals and communities produce their programs on a daily basis making community radio so ubiquitous that it has become part of our daily lives and part of the media landscape.”

The NEMBC is the peak body representing and advocating for ethnic community broadcasting and represents a vast institution: 2,000 hours of language programs produced each week on 100 radio stations in over 110 different languages” said  Russell Anderson Executive Officer of the NEMBC .
