Radio Monte Carlo-Middle East renamed
BBC Monitoring observes that the former Radio Monte Carlo – Moyen Orient (Middle East) now identifies on air as “Monte Carlo Doualiya” (International), which is reflected in a new website address: http://www.mc-doualiya.com/.
The station broadcasts in Arabic to the Middle East and North Africa on mediumwave 1233 kHz via a powerful transmitter located in Cyprus. It is also relayed on a network of FM transmitters situated throughout the region, on 5925 and 7135 kHz shortwave (0500-0600 UTC only) and on a live audio stream accessed from their website. Monte Carlo Doualiya is part of the French state-owned Radio France group.
