Voice of Lebanon (in Arabic صوت لبنان, transliterated as Sawt Lebnan, also known in French as Voix du Liban or by the abbreviation VDL) is a private radio station in Lebanon. Since December 2010, it is the name of two rival Lebanese radio stations using the name.[1]

History[edit]

Voice of Lebanon was established by the Lebanese Kataeb Party (Phalanges Party) in 1958 during the 1958 Lebanon crisis. It broadcast for a few months and ceased broadcasts with the departure of Lebanese President Camille Chamoun and arrival of President Fuad Chehab.

With the onslaught of the Lebanese Civil War, the station resumed its broadcasts in 1975 initially using the medium wave and later on also broadcasting on FM.

Two separate radio stations[edit]
