Deutsche Welle gains new partner in Moldova

Radio Vocea Basarabiei, a new DW partner station, is now broadcasting programming from DW-Radio to its listeners throughout Moldova and bordering areas. DW-Radio programming in Romanian is now being broadcast in Moldova via Radio Vocea Basarabiei, which broadcasts in the capital city Chisinau and across the country via ten additional VHF frequencies. Programming from DW-Radio is also being broadcast in the breakaway republic of Transnistria. This is the first time that DW has been present in the politically unstable region.
In addition, Vocea Basarabiei can also be received in Eastern Romania and Southwestern Ukraine (Odessa and Izmail regions). The entire line-up from DW-Radio Romanian can also be heard in the Moldovan capital of Chisinau via Radio Singera, which has been a partner of DW-Radio for many years.
DW-TV has been successful in Moldova for many years now. The public broadcaster Teleradio Moldova rebroadcasts the weekly magazine “Euromaxx Highlights”. Based on its popularity, programming from DW-TV has been expanded to 24 hours by TV Euronova and Albasat TV. DW-TV can thus be seen all over the country via various cable providers.
