Radio Gambia was the first media broadcaster of the Gambia following its establishment in 1962. Established during the colonial era with the assistance of advisors from Britain, almost all its programmes in its early years were rebroadcast of programmes in other parts of Africa and England. That strategy continued right after independence in 1965. Although it created its own news, educational shows and music programmes, Radio Gambia initially depended heavily on the BBC for programming.
As of 2007 the state-owned Gambia Radio and Television Service has two AM stations (Bonto, Basse) and three FM stations (Bonto, Serrekunda, Banjul). There are also seven private FM stations in Serrekunda, Banjul, and Basse.
HERE is a link to their shortwave service in 1972.
