Myanmar/Burma – Live Radio for the first time

Burma

Since 2012 and the political thaw in Burma/Myanmar, we have been working with a commercial media house in the country, Forever Group. With the goal of “making a difference for the citizens of Myanmar”, SR MDO has been involved in introducing a new profile, new formats and production methods at Mandalay FM, broadcasting in Yangon and Mandalay.

This has been highly successful, introducing the concept of live broadcasting, live audience interaction and increasingly relevant and popular live radio shows to the radio market in Myanmar. Mandalay FM was for several years the only radio station in the country broadcasting live.

In 2016, an entirely new radio station, targeting the urban youth of Yangon, was launched under the name of Teen Radio after training by SR MDO.

A third leg of the collaboration during 2016 is about professionalising the production and output of News and Current Affairs at the central newsroom of MRTV4, one of the most widely watched news productions on TV in the country.
