Radio Fana Share Company in Ethiopia has gone through a transformation to enable it to transmit other services in addition to its current shortwave and FM radio services. The station was established in 1994 as a share company, however, it has been broadcasting since 1985 when the current ruling party, the EPRDF, was fighting an insurgency against the military regime. The station is still associated with the EPRDF. Now, 15 years after its official foundation it has become the Radio Fana Broadcast Company (RBC).
According to sources at the radio station, the company has a plan to enter television. “It needs to meet preconditions to launch the new service, including technical and administrative assistance,” a source said.
