List of Kenyan Radio Stations and their frequencies

In Brief

– Radio has a rich history as a powerful tool of communication, dating back to the First World War.

– In the Kenyan set-up, liberalization of the press has given rise to the emergence of numerous radio stations.

– New trends in radio include the emergence of vernacular stations.

Efforts by activists in the early 90s to secure the arguably most important aspect of social life, the freedom of expression, translated into the birth of free press. The consequent resultant fact since then has been the rise in the number of liberal and commercialized media entities and radio has not been left behind.
