Digital Broadcasters: Radio24 News Radio

Digital Broadcasters Vendor News Asia (DBVNA) has been updated on
progress to Malaysia's National News Agency, Bernama's radio launch
date. That is now set for September 3.

Radio24 News Radio has begun its dry run on FM 93.9Mhz in Kuala
Lumpur serving the Klang Valley initially.

The FM radio station says it will have a live interactive news format
including traffic reports from reporters on the spot.

Radio24 news will be also from a national and international perspective.

The broadcaster is to establish its own identity in news gathering,
different to the current broadcasters, DBVNA understands.

DBVNA can't help wondering how impartial digital broadcaster, Bernama
can be when it is Malaysia's National News Agency - in effect the
mouthpiece of the government.
