Dave Kernick writes: The Central African Republic’s government-run broadcaster Radio Centrafrique now has an online presence at www.radiocentrafrique.org. The website is in French, the country’s official language.
Although the site does not have a live audio stream it does offer an extensive audio archive, including news bulletins in French and the national language, Sango. The complete news archive, extending back to January 2008, can be accessed by clicking the appropriate language section of the laterally scrolling link near the top of the homepage. Other audio material can be accessed via the “Programmes” text box on the left-hand side.
Initially broadcasting from a converted truck in the then French territory of Oubangi-Chari (or Ubangi-Shari, part of French Equatorial Africa), the station has been on the air since December 1958. No information on Radio Centrafrique’s current broadcasting frequencies was found on the website, however according to the current edition of the World Radio TV Handbook the station broadcasts on 1440 kHz mediumwave and 106.9 MHz FM, and irregularly on 7220 kHz shortwave.
