Tahiti Radio News

Many DXers only think of radio in Tahiti [French Polynesia] as being the public radio station Polynesie La Premiere at 738 AM or have memories of listening to the long gone shortwave outlets of the same station in previous names such as Radio Tahiti, FR3 or ORTF.

In fact, the World Radio TV Handbook 2014 records more than 30 radio stations now broadcasting from these islands in the South Pacific.

Recently, a new radio survey shows local listening habits as clearly favoring private commercial radio [48.8% market share] and private non-commercial radio [37.0%] over public radio [11.5% market share] with popular stations including Radio Te Reo O Tefana, Polynesie La Premiere, Taui FM and La Voix de l’Esperance.

Changes are underway to some licences in French Polynesia, and some new stations are also planned to come on the air in Tahiti, Moorea and other islands.

Currently, the Pacific Asia Listener Guide [PAL] at www.radioheritage.net lists just 738 AM as broadcasting from Papeete, Tahiti.

Radio Heritage Foundation supplies data on broadcasting in French Polynesia to the World Radio TV Handbook and has hundreds of features about radio from the Pacific and around the world at www.radioheritage.net.

It is a crowd funded project protecting thousands of items of original radio memorabilia dating back to the 1920’s and welcomes new supporters who are acknowledged on the Supporter Roll of Honor which already includes many well known DXers and broadcasters from around the world.
