First community radio on air Lokobetar's test run starts in Barguna
The first community radio station in Bangladesh, named Lokobetar, has
begun test transmissions in the district town of Barguna to build public
opinion on development issues like democracy, good governance, human
rights, anti-corruption, health and women empowerment. Mass-Line Media
Centre (MMC), a development organisation, with financial and technical
support from Unesco, set up the radio station, which has been on trial
since 27 May and is expected to go for full-fledged transmission by
mid-June. The station will cover a radius of about 17 kilometres around
Barguna town on FM 99.2 MHz.
