MEDIA LAUNCH: New station Wat Phnom targets youth

MEDIA LAUNCH
The Ministry of Information’s National Radio Department on Thursday formally launched a new state-owned radio station aimed at younger audiences that government officials said would help to promote democracy. Wat Phnom FM 105.75, a sister channel of the existing National Radio channel AM 918, will be geared towards young listeners and will feature educational programmes and news features. With support from AusAID, the Australian government’s development agency, and the World Bank, Wat Phnom FM 105.75 began airing on November 1 as a pilot project. “We hope that the new station will benefit the public and reinforce democracy in the Kingdom of Cambodia,” said Sorm Sarun, deputy general director of the National Radio Department, at Thursday’s opening ceremony, which was also attended by Information Minister Khieu Kanharith. Sorm Sarun added that the new station will also cover topics such as good governance, politics, economics and social issues.
