Studios in Khartoum and Juba have been linked to enable North-South debates and ensure the participation and feedback from the citizens. From six in the morning until eight in the evening, listeners are updated with news on the top of the hour.
The new program of Miraya brings a further two regional streams for northern and southern Sudan produced by the Khartoum and Juba studios respectively and broadcast twice a day. “Current Affairs” and “Social and Entertainment” programs inform on regional news, popularise traditional music and provide an interactive format to discuss topics of special interest to women (from 10:00 to noon) and youth (from 15:00 to 17:00)
The programs follow the Miraya long established tradition since its launch in June 2006 to address issues that are important to communities across Sudan and to promote better understanding of each other and themselves.
Miraya is preparing special electoral programming. Its electoral coverage is governed by the Miraya Electoral Charter, available on-line at http://www.mirayafm.org/ .
Following Miraya’s policy of promoting the local culture and the Sudanese artists, the sound of Miraya is original music produced by northern and southern Sudanese musicians performing with traditional and modern instruments.
Miraya is a 24 hour, seven day a week radio operated by the United Nations Mission in Sudan in partnership with Fondation Hirondelle, a Swiss non-governmental organization.
