The audience will be unable to hear Akashvani Dibrugarh Kendra’s Assamese news, which is broadcast every day at six o’clock in the evening. No news or news-related bulletins from Dibrugarh Akashvani Kendra will be broadcasted after October 25, according to Delhi Prasar Bharati’s no. 13(2)RNU-21 Dinank 21-10-2022 guidelines. Prasar Bharti highlighted cost-cutting as the reason for closing the Akashvani Dibrugarh Centre’s Assamese news bulletin.
Following an order from Prasar Bharti, the Assamese language news bulletin of Akashvani Dibrugarh will be completely closed as of October 24. AIR Dibrugarh, which was founded on February 15, 1968, is India’s sixth largest medium wave radio station, broadcasting three times a day in both AM (567kHz) at 529.1 metres of MW and FM (101.30MHz) bands, with a 5-minute regional news bulletin at 6 PM.
Akashvani Dibrugarh, one of the 27 All India Radio (AIR) stations in the Northeast, can be proud of its accomplishments despite the odds.
The radio station’s origins can be traced back to the post-India-China War era when the facility was built to counter Chinese waves from high-frequency transmitters all across the international border.
After battling a manpower shortage for nearly 50 years, the most remarkable achievement has been to strike an “emotional” chord with not only the people of Upper Assam but also those of neighbouring Arunachal Pradesh and Nagaland.
In 2018, On February 15, All India Radio Dibrugarh entered its 50th year of broadcasting and commemorated the occasion with a year-long programme.
