Radio Miraya enjoys a unique position in South Sudan. It has the largest number of listeners, the greatest reach to communities across the country and is the most trusted source of news.
Launched in 2005 under the auspices of the United Nations Mission in Sudan, its initial main goal was to support the implementation of the Comprehensive Peace Agreement that marked the end of the long conflict between the south and north.
Radio Miraya moved all its operations to South Sudan with the independence of the new nation on 9 July 2011, and the establishment of UNMISS.
Radio Miraya broadcasts seven days a week, 24 hours a day on FM to all major towns in South Sudan. Programs are broadcast on 26 FM relays from Juba, the capital of South Sudan, in English and simple Arabic.
Radio Miraya is a proudly diverse radio station which has grown to an organization of more than 40 national staff members (journalists, presenters, technicians, and support staff) which have been recruited from all over South Sudan.
