CCMC welcomes the launch of Anahtar Media

Everyone associated with the Cyprus Community Media Centre (CCMC) was delighted to see the successful launch of Anahtar Media, a joint venture between Radio Astra and Radyo Mayis. The two stations produced their first joint, live, simultaneous, on-location broadcast from the Home for Cooperation on Friday 24 June, to mark the close of the two-day conference organised by the Collaborative Media Initiative.

As the third partner in the Anahtar consortium, CCMC looks forward to contributing further to the initiative in the months to come. It is our belief that the will, determination, and innovation displayed by Astra and Mayis can become an example to others who seek to improve relationships and collaboration with colleagues across the divide in Cyprus. CCMC stands ready to support organisations and individuals from across the island who share the same goals and aspirations.
