Media of Nauru

Media in Nauru remain undeveloped, but Australian aid program AusAID has been financing and supporting their development. As of February 15, 2010, Nauruan media consist in a television station and a radio station, with a fortnightly newspaper due to be launched within days. Former Australian Broadcasting Corporation broadcaster Rod Henshaw is serving as interim media director for the Nauruan government.[1]

Press

In 2009, Nauruan press consisted in the weekly government-issued Nauru Bulletin, the fortnightly Central Star News, and the fortnightly Nauru Chronicle.[2][3] By early 2010, they were all reported as having gone out of print.[4]

With the assistance of AusAID, a fortnightly newspaper, Mwinen Ko, is due to launch on February 24, 2010.[5]

Television

Nauru Television (NTV) -operated by the state-owned, non-commercial Nauru Broadcasting Service- was launched in 1991. In addition to local programmes, it broadcasts programmes from the Australian Broadcasting Corporation's Australia Network and from New Zealand television. It is the only television company in the country.[6][7][8]

Radio

Radio Nauru, also operated by the Nauru Broadcasting Service, broadcasts local content and programmes from Radio Australia and the British Broadcasting Corporation.[9][10][11]
