Editorial Policy

INTRODUCTION

KAHAMA FM RADIO’s Editorial Policy goes in tandem with the main objectives of its establishment i.e. Informing, Educating and Entertaining the public. It subscribes to standards of editorial independence designed to enable it to run as a commercial entity at the same time being able to address the needs of the surrounding communities including the disadvantaged and the marginalized e.g. people with disabilities, children, youth, women and the elders.

EDITORIAL CONTENT

KAHAMA FM RADIO retains full authority over editorial content, maintaining a firewall between news coverage decisions and the pursuit of revenue. Accepting financial support does not constitute implied or actual endorsement of donors or their products, services or opinions.

EXTERNAL SUPPORT

KAHAMA FM RADIO accepts, grants and sponsorships from individuals and non-political organizations for the general support of our activities, but all editorial decisions are made independently, not on the basis of donor support.

At times, we accept support for coverage of particular topics, but those topics are determined by our editorial staff while maintaining full editorial control of the resulting coverage. Donors receive no preferential coverage nor do they have the right to review editorial content before it is published and do not influence the direction or findings of our reporting in any way.

We do not accept donations from government entities, political parties, elected officials or candidates actively seeking public office, nor do we accept donations from sources that our board of directors deems could present a conflict of interest with our work or compromise our editorial independence.

OUR EDITORIAL STAFF

Our Editorial staffs including reporters, presenters and producers are all expected to adhere to professional ethics and standards during the course of their day to day duties and responsibilities.
