The South African media have been going through a process of transformation during the past decade. However, these changes are not regarded by influential black journalists as being sufficient. They are therefore insisting on more fundamental changes to ownership, newsrooms and editorial content. At the same time government is planning to set up structures which will lead to the subsidising of certain media (newspapers and radio stations), in particular community-based media. The paper will focus on the latter developments which places the 'community media' in the spotlight.
