The great efforts from the GAM continues to impress us with a new service promoting for a two way communication to reach the citizens. The new GAM Radio Station is a community media that will, with no doubt, participate in the development of the political and social development of our community. This is a new initiative to reach the citizens who needs to be taught the importance of participation in Amman city development.
AMMAN - The Greater Amman Municipality (GAM) announced on Thursday that it will launch a private radio station in an effort to establish a dialogue with the capital’s residents.
The station will focus on GAM affairs, by “announcing the municipality’s objectives behind each project it implements”, according to the GAM press centre.
The station will keep Amman residents up-to-date with the municipality’s latest news and events throughout the city, the center added.
According to GAM Press Center Director Taha Abu Redin, the radio station will provide GAM with the public’s feedback on each of its projects, municipal activities and services. As a public service organisation, GAM believes in the importance of two-way communication with the residents of the capital, which is the “base of success”, the center said. The station will broadcast several programmes tailored to listeners within the greater Amman area, which now covers 1,680 square meters.
One of its main features will be live talk shows that focus on the problems and difficulties facing the capital’s residents. The station will be based at GAM headquarters in Ras Al Ain. Any plans for expansion will depend on its success in its first year. The station will start broadcasting by mid-November, according to a GAM source. 24 August 2007
