Initiative summary:

Boom93 is an independent radio and news portal from Pozarevac, in Central-Eastern Serbia. They also manage a public space for civil society, media and other actors to promote democracy, rule of law and human rights. After many sponsors withdrew their advertising from the radio station because of the Covid-19 pandemic, EED emergency support is allowing them to continue operations in this time of crisis, paying for the editorial staff’s salaries, overhead costs, work equipment and online promotion.
