International Radio Serbia is the only short-wave radio station in the country broadcasting its program to all parts of the world, in twelve languages – in Serbian for our Diaspora, as well as in English, French, German, Russian, Spanish, Arabic, Albanian, Greek, Italian, Hungarian, and Chinese.
International Radio Serbia daily broadcasts programs on short wave and 24 hours a day via satellite in Serbian and in 11 foreign languages. In Serbian, for our Diaspora, besides news programs, at 12.00, 3.30pm and 9.30pm, there are also programs on all the important events in the country, in our cultural heritage, tradition and customs, tourism and ecology, current events in the area of culture and sports, events in the Diaspora, activities that relate to Serbia and other topics which are dictated by the times and people, and especially those suggested by our listeners throughout the world.
In foreign languages, all these programs are broadcast in half hour shows, collage in nature, which have two slots and are also rerun.
Programs of International Radio Serbia can be heard at www.glassrbije.org which has been in existence for fourteen years, and in November 2007 a new one was made with the use of the most advanced programs. The new website, which is very easy to use, modern and informative, has already garnered compliments of users, as well as that of experts. One can read and hear information from all areas, politics, economy, culture, traditions, to sport. Thus, on a daily basis, listeners and visitors of the website of International Radio Serbia, through the Internet, receive news from Serbia, the region and the world, in twelve languages, on over two and a half thousand pages. News and other information of the website of International Radio Serbia is reported and quoted by many local and foreign websites, and many have a direct link with the website of International Radio Serbia.
In following the latest trends and in attempt to meet the requests of its listeners and website visitors, the VIDEO NEWS were introduced in November 2008 in the Serbian language, while starting in November 2010, they can also be found in all 11 foreign languages we offer. The video production of the International Radio Serbia has been expanded with the features of SERBIAN BEAUTIES and MUSIC HERITAGE. Also introduced are the package entitled ONE STEP CLOSER TO BUSINESS, and the web page of the same title, where in one place one can find the answers to the question “why invest in Serbia”.
International Radio Serbia is one of the oldest short wave radio stations, and was founded six years before the Voice of America. The broadcasting of the program for foreign countries from this region started on March 8, 1936, in the Kingdom of Yugoslavia.
In conditions of constant financial strains it has not been easy to carry out our tasks in the previous years. Outdated and worn technical equipment, lack of funds for renewal, and lack of understanding for the importance of informing the foreign public and Diaspora by short wave, have considerably slowed down the realization of the development plan of International Radio Serbia. With considerable efforts during 2007, we have renewed our strong transmitters in the short wave center in Bijeljina, and have begun broadcasting program over satellite and have created a new Internet presentation. Owing to this, International Radio Serbia once again can return to its old slogan IF YOU CANNOT HEAR US, THEN THAT MUST BE END OF THE WORLD, which was familiar for many years to many listeners throughout the world.
Over the past years International Radio Serbia has received thousands of letters from listeners of the Diaspora and the entire world, and they still keep coming. They contain praise, suggestions and questions, usually with the statement that it is from International Radio Serbia that they receive the most complete information on events in this area, as well as answers to many questions. Most questions usually come from our Diaspora, and they are most interested in new legal regulations in various areas, conditions for capital investment in Serbia, suggestions for holiday destinations, participation in important humanitarian activities and questions in the area of tradition and customs. We have good relations with them, as they provide feedback on our program, ideas for its realization, as well as encouragement to continue to send information from Serbia, as letters from listeners are a confirmation of the necessity of the existence of International Radio Serbia.
