This research paper therefore, investigated problems encountered in running community radio in Ondo state. The activities of kakaki 100.1FM and Ejulenen 93.1FM was discussed. The research was anchored on the Technological Determinism Theory and Development Media Theory. The work was on qualitative and in-depth interview were used as research instrument.
