Broadcasting Commission

Government of Jamaica 

The Commission recognizes the critical role that citizens can and should play in monitoring the numerous radio and television channels that exist. As a response to the increase in broadcasting and cable outlets, the Commission established a corps of islandwide Citizen based Media Monitors to assist in more comprehensive and effective monitoring of radio and television output. The media monitors will be drawn from diverse age groups, communities and organizations across the country.

The Commission is accepting volunteers into the programme. Do you want to volunteer to be a Media Monitor?

A representative from the BCJ will contact you with further details.
