SLBC has a website with limited information on the management structure. As such, secondary sources were referenced to compile data on the channels. There are also no individual websites for each radio channel, instead they are all featured on SLBC's official website. Listenership data was obtained from the Kantar Lanka Market Research Bureau (LMRB) for the year 2017 (January- November).
