Eye Media, the mother-organization of Eye Radio, has launched a new shortwave broadcast service to complement its existing FM broadcasts in South Sudan.

The broadcast, which commences today, brings listeners news and information in Arabic, Shilluk, Dinka, Bari, Zande, Lutoho, and Nuer.

“The Eye Radio Shortwave will cover the whole of South Sudan including remote areas in which communities are not able to access FM radio staions,” Eye Media Stephen Omiri  CEO said in a statement.

Eye Radio’s new broadcasts will run from 7:00 to 8:00 each morning on 11730 kHz on the 25 meter band and 17730 kHz on the 17 meter band from 19:00 to 20:00.
