Loliondo Community Radio - Loliondo FM has started its testing on equipment and reach since November 4th, 2013. During this time, the Radio has been received in most parts of Ngorongoro, Tarime, Serengeti and Bunda districts. The response from the audience is tremendous.
Also during this time, the officers from Tanzania Communication and Regulatory Authority Northern Zone visited the Radio for their normal inspection and to use the platform to inform and educate the listeners of Loliondo Radio on regulations, rights and duties of communication related services from different providers of communication services.
It is also during this time, that we hosted the officers from Southern African Centre for Infectious Disease Surveillance (SACIDS) who wish to learn about the Loliondo Community Radio and ways that they can use to air their research findings and programmes to the people of Ngorongoro district.
