Radio | Radio Miraya FM (Juba)

Radio station run by the United Nations Mission in South Sudan.

According to the Radio Miraya website :

Radio Miraya is a generalist radio station : news, current affairs, needs-based programming, interactivity, music and sports.

Radio Miraya is an essential tool for promoting pluralism, diversity and education and the forging of a truly national identity. Radio Miraya plays a central role in keeping the public informed, the government and other senior officials accountable, and could ultimately become a platform for reconciliation and conflict mitigation efforts.

Values :

Excellence and professionalism are at the center of Radio Miraya’s work. We are governed by core principles of fairness, accuracy and balance in all our news and programmes.

Independence from political and economic pressure is crucial for us. Independence guarantees the impartiality of our journalism and ensures our credibility with the population. No one, except those mandated by Radio Miraya, has any control over what is broadcast on our airwaves.

Integrity is essential for us. As journalists we report facts as accurately as possible, taking into account our biases, prejudices, life experiences and personal perspectives. Our interaction with third parties, governments, authorities, donors and partners is characterized by professional integrity.

Diversity is something we prize and respect. An open approach to the world is an integral part of our identity. Our teams are made up of staff from different ethnic groups, cultural backgrounds and religious beliefs. This multi-ethnic mix helps build an atmosphere of mutual respect and helps us promote cultural diversity andpeaceful co-existence.

Who we are :

Radio Miraya is a 24 hour, 7 day a week radio operated by the United Nations Mission in South Sudan in partnership with Fondation Hirondelle, a Swiss non-governmental organization.

Programmes are broadcast on 26 FM relays from Juba, capital of South Sudan, in English and simple Arabic. Radio Miraya also has a daily Short Wave broadcasts accessible throughout the country. Our website, www.radiomiraya.org, provides live audio streaming, news bulletins and other selected programmes.

Launched on June 30, 2006, Radio Miraya has grown to an organization of more than 100 national staff members (journalists, presenters, technicians and support staff) who have been recruited from all over South Sudan and trained in-house. Reporters are based throughout the states, reporting on issues of concern to local communities.

Fondation Hirondelle builds and supports quality media in crisis zones and post-conflict situations. It strives to build media that are trustworthy, relevant, enjoyable and, above all, credible. Most of Fondation Hirondelle projects focus on creating independent radio stations offering news and information on a nation-wide basis. Funding to Fondation Hirondelle for Radio Miraya currently comes from Germany, Sweden and Switzerland.
