Sudan’s radio service was launched in May 1940, during World War II, broadcasting for half-an-hour daily.
It embarked on digitalisation in 2000 when the radio station imported digital equipment in the form of a computer network from Netia, a French company.
Today, the radio service is completely digital in production. It has started an archive project to digitalise 160,000 reel tapes.
Sudan National Public Radio has seven radio stations which provide several services.
