It has been 18 years since the enactment of Law of The Republic of Indonesia Number 32 of 2002 on Broadcasting in Indonesia. During that time, Sistem Siaran Jaringan or commonly known as SSJ became the national broadcasting system. One of the elements in SSJ that differentiates it from the previous broadcasting system is the obligation for private broadcasters in Indonesia to broadcast local programs as much as 10% of their total broadcast hours. The hopes of Law of The Republic of Indonesia Number 32 of 2002 on Broadcasting, diversity of content and diversity of ownership, are often echoed in research related to broadcasting activities as a "revolution" from the previous broadcasting law which had the impression of being centralized from Jakarta. How are things now? Has this objective been implemented properly by private broadcaster in its broadcasting activities in Malang City?.
