English-Language Radio Iceland on the Air

By Iceland Review

A new Icelandic English-language radio station, Radio Iceland, went live last week, broadcasting news about Iceland, weather updates, information on road conditions and Icelandic music, along with interviews with noteworthy people and stories about Iceland.

“We are especially focusing on our visitors who are driving around in Iceland. Also, people online who want to know more about Icelandic music and foreigners in general who are curious about life in Iceland,” Radio Iceland general manager Jan Murtomaa told Iceland Review Online contributor Gabriele Schneider.

“We have listeners all over the world. People from Australia, Canada, the Caribbean and South America were the first who sent us messages within half an hour after we went on air and online,” Jan added.

People can tune into Radio Iceland on FM frequencies 89.1 in Reykjavík, 87.7 in Akureyri and 89.9 in South Iceland, or listen to it online on www.RadioIcelandfm.is. The radio station broadcasts around the clock.
