MOSCOW, November 12 (Itar-Tass) — Moscow’s first English-language round-the-clock radio station, Moscow FM, started broadcast at midday on Monday.
Mayor Sergei Sobyanin greeted the audience with the beginning of broadcast.
“I hope this radio station will open this city for the entire world. The guests coming here for business or leisure purposes would be able to feel at ease. Listen to your favourite music, learn news about this city, the best city in the world. Congratulations!” the mayor said. His greeting was dubbed in English.
Moscow FM positions itself as a guide for foreigners and for those studying the English language. Most programmes would be devoted to foreign music, and 20-30 percent of the time will be taken by news. Besides the city news, the radio stations plans to cover international news, too. Moscow FM is a part of the Moskva-Media holding company /television channels Moscow-24, Doveriye (Trust), radio station Moscow Speaking, and others/.
About 150,000 foreigners are working permanently in Russia nowadays, where the majority come from the US, the UK and Germany and live in Moscow.
