Radio Sawa Launches App

Station reaches out to Arab youth in Iraq, Egypt, Jordan, Morocco, Gulf, Lebanon and Sudan

Radio Sawa, an Arabic-language radio network in the Middle East that broadcasts music and news 24 hours a day 7 days a week, has launched an app for iPhones, iPads and Android phones and tablets.

According to the broadcaster, content and features available through the Radio Sawa app include live broadcasts of its seven streams; user participation through “Sawa Chat”; ease of use and sharing content; on demand podcasts; and continuous audio playing

“We are very excited that this app will fundamentally change the way people can listen to Radio Sawa,” said Brian Conniff, president of Middle East Broadcasting Networks (MBN), which manages and operates Radio Sawa. “The new app allows listeners from across the region to have access Radio Sawa’s brand of accurate and objective news in a way that is easy for them. This is especially important in countries where Radio Sawa does not have an FM transmitter.”

The Radio Sawa app, which can be downloaded here, is produced in partnership with the Broadcasting Board of Governors Office of Digital & Design Innovation (ODDI).
