Cambodian Center for Independent Media (CCIM)

The Cambodian Center for Independent Media (CCIM )is the legal entity of VOD Radio. It was created in Phnom Penh in 2007 and is registered with the Ministry of Interior as a non-governmental organization.


Its mission is to promote democratic governance and human rights enforcement in Cambodia through the development of a pluralistic and independent media environment. CCIM is directed by Pa Nguon Teang, the former deputy director of the Cambodian Centre for Human Rights.


CCIM has been applying for a radio license for VOD at the Ministry of Information, which was never granted. As a result, it began operating a existing radio station in Siem Reap,Sarika FM, at the end of the first quarter of 2009. By the end of that year, Sarika FM had a combined coverage area of 14 out of 24 provinces and municipalities, with a potential listenership of 8.5 million of Cambodia’s total 14 million population.


Since 2011, CCIM has been developing multimedia approaches to produce and disseminate content by:

Using VOD as its radio-program production house; Operating Sarika FM as the radio broadcasting network; Developing for online production and dissemination; Laying groundwork for a TV/video production team.


CCIM considers that media development plays a critical role in improving democratic governance and enforcement of human rights in Cambodia.
