The Australian Communications and Media Authority has renewed the licence for Sydney suburb community broadcasting radio station, 2HHH Hornsby, 100.1FM for 5 years.
The ACMA made the renewal after the New South Wales community station was able to satisfy concerns raised by the Authority, over membership provisions and financial aspects of its broadcasting operations.
The procedures for renewing a community broadcasting licence are set out in section 90 and section 91 of the Broadcasting Services Act 1992 (the Act). The Act was amended in December 2002 to give the Authority more discretion to review a community broadcasting licence at the time that it is due for renewal.
Hornsby is a Sydney suburb where a number of broadcasters are located including some of the facilities of the Australian Broadcasting Corporation.
