Malaysia's first Community Radio Station
In July 2009, e-Bario Sdn Bhd was awarded a grant by the Indigenous Peoples Assistance Facility of the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD) to set up a community radio station. Community radio is a form of low-power small-scale FM broadcasting that is run by and for the community it serves. The function of Bario Radio is to extend the information services of the e-Bario telecentre into the homes of the residents of the surrounding area. After waiting a year for government permission, Radio Bario began broadcasting in October 2011 after being set up by Max Graef of RadioActive and his team of volunteers.
