Community Radio in Bangladesh  
Good news on the Community radio front in Bangladesh. This is a news report from Panos South Asia:

In this edition, we are in Dhaka, Bangladesh where a sudden rise in the operation of community radio stations is expected after the government, for the first time, came up with a progressive and pro-radio broadcasting law in March 2008 that allows ownership of such radio stations to the local community. Bangladesh is the second country after Nepal, among South Asian countries, to make such a move. So far, 116 community radio stations are waiting their final go ahead to be on air. (15:00)
