Nauru Culture and Mass Media

Newspapers in Nauru

According to A2ZGOV.COM, Nauru is a country located in Oceania. In Nauru there are few regularly published newspapers; most important is the weekly Bulletin, which is published in Nauru and English. The State Nauru Broadcasting Service (founded in 1968) broadcasts radio in Nauru and English. Since 1991, television broadcasts, mainly broadcasts of New Zealand TV, have occurred. There are approximately 580 radio receivers per 1,000 residents (1996).


According to CALCULATORINC, the traditional culture in Nauru has been squeezed under the strain that first a long-standing foreign occupation and then a sudden material abundance have brought.

The Naurus are more influenced by the Western world than other peoples in the region, they watch Australian and British TV and live to a large extent on imported fast food. However, a remnant of the past is the strong position of the clan; political loyalties often follow the family ties.
