With the launch of new programs in West Africa, Trans World Radio now carries its Christian programming in more than 225 languages and dialects worldwide.
Recent broadcasts include programs in Baatonum, Ditammari and Lukpa, all languages spoken in Benin; and Ifè, a language of Togo.
“Expanding the number of languages and dialects TWR airs broadens our opportunity to reach even more people with the Gospel message,” says TWR Chairman of the Board and Interim CEO Thomas J. Lowell.
Programs are broadcast from more than 2,000 outlets, including 14 international transmitting sites, as well as local AM, shortwave, long wave, FM, direct-to-listener satellite broadcasts, cable audio systems and the Internet.
TWR reached the 200-language/dialect milestone in November 2005. Since then, the network has added a new 100 kW AM station in Benin, among other local affiliates around the world.
