Inside a radio station in Qalat, Afghanistan

Radio continues to be the most popular form of media in Afghanistan, accessed by 100% of the population. By 2011 there were 175 radio stations in the country.[1]

History[edit]

Radio broadcasting went into air in 1925 with Radio Kabul being the first station in the country. There are many radio stations today, with AM, FM and shortwave, broadcasting mainly in Pashto and Persian as well as some English languages.

Kunar is said to have little access to independent media. There are no daily newspapers in Kunar. Other than foreign radios such as BBC, Radio Azadi and Voice of America there is only KRTV, a government-affiliated Radio/TV station, and several small FM stations that play music most of the time. There is also Nakhter FM in Asadabad. Nakhter covers all the areas of Asadabad and some neighboring districts such as Manawara, Shigal, Watapur, Narang, Tsawki, Asmar, and Sarkani.
