Shaun Language aired at Radio Free Burma

US-based Radio Free Asia Burmese program is reporting in ethnic languages including Shan beginning this week, according to Soe Thinn, head of the program.

News in Shan language will be aired towards the end of the program every Friday evening, 19:00-20:00, Burma standard time. Each non-Burman language is given a 5 minute air time.

The weekly news in Shan will be read out by Sai Yi Hpong and Nang Ye Hawm, S.H.A.N.'s newest members.

The other Shan program from Norway-based Democratic Voice of Burma (DVB) can be heard every Wednesday at 06:45-07:00 and 21:45-22:00.

In addition, there are more than 10 community radio stations in northern Thailand with Shan sections, 6 in Mae Ai, Fang and Chaiprakarn alone.
