[Guinean news] First private radio station in Guinea hits the airwaves
Radio Nostalgie Guinée became the first private radio station in the country's history. Based in the Téminétaye quartier of Kaloum in Conakry, RNG hit the airwaves yesterday at 6:00 PM local time. The station is currently broadcasting only music but intends to hire people to produce news programs, said its director. Guinea thus becomes the last country in the sub-region to allow private broadcasters.
