RAM FM 93.6 – new on palestine FM
The launch of the first English-language radio station, broadcast both in the occupied Palestinian territories and in Israel, was announced in the West Bank city of Ramallah.
This initiative, which was announced by the South African businessman, Mr Ayzi Kersh, is intended to promote peace in the Middle East. The new radio station, RAM FM 93.6, which will broadcast 24 hours a day in English to listeners throughout the Palestinian territories and Israel, is based on the South African radio station, Radio 702, which represented a successful platform for public opinion in South Africa during the intensely sensitive period that preceeded the democratic elections of 1994.
RAM FM 93.6 is licensed with the Palestinian Authority and broadcasts through new high-tech studios in both Ramallah and Jerusalem. The director of the radio station, Maysoon Genget, leads a specialized and talented team whose members have received numerous prizes from South Africa, Australia and Europe. There is a Palestinian team that works in the studios in Ramallah and some Israeli employees in the Jerusalem studios.
