This paper will present the results of an audience study carried out in Korogocho slum,
Nairobi, Kenya, during spring 2009. The study is based on a survey and a series of group
interviews with youth living in Korogocho slum. It focuses on the attitudes towards
community media and media access and use. Do the young inhabitants of the slum agree that
community media belongs to the community and caters to their needs? Has the community
radio station any affect on their identity and perception of themselves? Have they changed
their media habits once the option of community media arose, or are they still mainly using
commercial mainstream media?
