– Its cheaper than FM broadcasting, its a platform everyone with internet or a smartphone in the community can use and we can broadcast independent information.

The training is the first Online radio training held for ethnic language journalists, all of their media houses members of BNI, a partner to Fojo/IMS. The idea is to slow start online radio shows, while waiting for the new broadcasting law to come into full effect.
– With online radio we at Shan Herald for example can provide broadcast time for human rights organisations like SWAN (Shan Women´s Action Network ) that contributes to the empowering of women.
