KBS World Radio announces program cancellations

South Korea, KBS World 

Cancellation of Programs

We have recently learned that, unfortunately, one of the team members at KBS WORLD Radio's English Service has tested positive for COVID-19.

In order to prevent the spread of infection, KBS WORLD Radio has taken the preemptive measure of suspending all production of the programs Korea24 and K-POP Connection.

Korea24: From December 28 to December 31, Korea24 will be replaced by reruns of previous KBS WORLD Radio special programs. On January 1, a special program marking the new year will be broadcast. Regular Korea24 programming will resume on January 4, 2021.

K-POP Connection: K-POP Connection will air reruns of previous episodes from December 29, 2020, to January 7, 2021, except for January 1, when a pre-recorded new-year special episode will air. Regular programming to resume on January 8, 2021.

The English Service is striving for the safe and quick normalization of all production. We ask for our listeners' understanding of this inconvenience.
