DVB Ends Radio Broadcasting

THURSDAY, 28 AUGUST 2014 07:19 IMNA NEWS - INDEPENDENT MON NEWS AGENCY



At the end of October, the Democratic Voice of Burma (DVB) will stop producing its ethnic language radio program after 21 years of broadcasting, a decision revealed yesterday during a meeting of staff members from DVB's Ethnic Groups' Program.

"Because there are more and more magazines and journals [being distributed] in the country, the audience [listening through] short-wave radio has become smaller. We broadcast the news at six in the morning and nine in the evening, but at those times the audience has demonstrated a preference for newspapers and journals instead of waiting for us," said DVB editor U Khin Maung Soe.
