Consell and Ràdio Illa extend partnership

President Ferrer, saying he was “thrilled to once again renew our shared commitment”, explained that the €50,000 in assistance the Consell will give ACAF in 2018 will be for content production. According to the administration's chief, the task at hand for ACAF is about “both quality and quantity”. He highlighted the station's many years of service and the wealth of praise received during that time. So far this year those qualities have already earned Ràdio Illa two honours—recognition from Onda Cero Eivissa for excellence in communication and the 2018 Premi d'Honor for the station's work at the local level.

The ACAF chairman offered the Consell special thanks for its support, but extended those sentiments to listeners as well, and to the personnel who make the service possible. To hear Méndoza tell it, Ràdio Illa has earned its place as local listeners' go-to radio station, but the work isn't finished. “If we want to keep that trust”, he confided, “we've got to continue keeping islanders in the know”.
