A Radio Revolution in Libya

Monday, August 29, 2011

As the revolution continues in Libya, independent radio stations have begun broadcasting in Benghazi and Tripoli, and the practice is becoming more popular. Without state censors watching their every move, broadcasters are free to spread their message far and wide. Our partner the BBC has been monitoring this and brings us this report on what role the radio is playing in revolutionary Libya.
