Launched in October 2012 as the first community radio station in Yemen, Yemen Times Radio is dedicated to mitigating civil conflict, advocating for women’s rights, and promoting peaceful coexistence in Yemen’s ongoing civil war.
The radio station has maintained a neutral stand in Yemen since violence first engulfed the country in 2015. Despite threats of shutdown, Yemen Times Radio has worked hard towards preventing civil conflict and the disintegration of the country’s social fabric, but its steadfast push for peace has been difficult.
In February 2018, Yemen Times Radio inaugurated an online platform to act as a hub for a number of Yemeni community radios. This platform will serve as a common ground for Yemeni community voices.
Make yourself heard
Yemen Times Radio endeavors to make the community voice reaches people and officials in order to create a communication channel and a platform for expression. Hence the radio adopted the slogan “Make yourself heard.”
Currently, the radio produces 21 programs which address social issues. Three of those programs exclusively focus on empowering women.
The radio broadcasts at frequency 91.9 FM and covers Sana’a district and governorate. Its coverage reaches large parts of the surrounding governorates of Dhamar, Amran and Mahweet. Its broadcast also reaches some parts of Ibb governorate’s heights.
You can listen to the live broadcast 12 hours every day through Mixlr website. All episodes, programs and activities are also uploaded to soundcloud. You can also interact with our programs through our pages on Facebook and Twitter.
