Goodbye George

It is with much sadness and regret that we wish to announce the untimely demise of our friend and a fellow community radio broadcaster George Christensen of Gambia. 

George was well known globally for his advocacy for community radio and freedom of expression. His knowledge and insights inspired many fellow broadcasters and advocates in Africa and beyond. He was one of the founding members of AMARC Africa – the African chapter of the World Association of Community Radio Broadcasters.
