PAPUA NEW GUINEA RADIO NOW - NEW MULTIMEDIA FEATURE IS NOW ONLINE

WELLINGTON (Radio Heritage Foundation/Pacific Media Watch): 
A new multi-media feature about Papua New Guinea Radio in 2011 has
been released by the Radio Heritage Foundation at

The new feature includes reviews of major Papua New Guinea radio
websites, updates on the new radio licensing laws, how increased
cell-phone coverage is opening up a rapidly growing youth market and
some little known facts about contemporary broadcasting in this south
west Pacific nation.  

Based on a recent documentary broadcast on Radio New Zealand
International, this new feature includes original research, photos of
broadcasters, shortwave and FM studios and facilities, a downloadable
audio version of the documentary, and a YouTube presentation
combining audio, text and images. 

Few readers comprehend that Port Moresby, the national capital, now
has a population approaching 350,000 people, a freeway system, a
booming construction of high rise office and residential buildings,
and that local radio listeners have some 15 separate radio brands to
choose from along the FM dial....and even sponsored drivetime radio
shows with local radio personalities.

Commercial radio brands such as FM100, Nau FM, Yumi FM and new
arrivals, are expanding rapidly across the mountainous country, using
the cell-phone infrastructure networks that are exploding on the back
of a major natural gas, oil and mineral resources boom. Radio station
profits grew by 30% in 2010 and a new national media framework is
bringing modern communications and FM radio to the most remote
villages.

The Kundu network with its dated shortwave radio stations, competing
religious radio stations tangling the airwaves, new commercial
stations, and a large base of local record studios churning out local
popular music that feeds the playlists of Radio Morobe, Wantok Radio,
Tribe FM and a growing number of other stations...this is just part
of todays radio story.

Use the fully up to date guides to contemporary AM and shortwave radio
stations in Papua New Guinea - free access to our PAL Radio Guides is
always available at www.radioheritage.com

Use the Google Search to find more features about broadcasting in
Papua New Guinea, including the AFRS Jungle Network, the Australian
AAAS stations and much more.
