Channel 31 granted six more months of broadcasting
After first being slated to be pulled off air and switching to online-only broadcast, free-to-air community station Channel 31 have been granted a further six months of broadcasting.
It comes in the wake of a widespread social media campaign, petitioning Senator Mitch Fifield to consider the community value of the station, while giving the station more time to replace what they will lose when they switch off.
