Radio Taiwan International – RTI

Posted by

Radio Taiwan International broadcasts worldwide from the Republic of China on Taiwan.

RTI- Radio Taiwan Internationa is a government-owned station that broadcasts in 13 languages around the world,

with a majority emphasis on Mandarin-language broadcasts over shortwave into China.

The Central Broadcasting System founded in 1928 as the voice of the Kuomintang (KMT) government quartered in Nanking on mainland China.

During the Second Sino-Japanese War the KMT forced by Japanese advances to relocate the radio station,

along with the capital city, first to Hankou in the central Hubei Province and then to Chungking in south-central China.

After the conclusion of the Second World War, which saw the surrender and withdrawal of Japanese forces,

the KMT and the Communist Party of China resumed their civil war.

The defeated Kuomintang (KMT) retreated to Taiwan in 1949 and the Central Broadcasting System moved with them.

Between 1996 and 1998, the Central Broadcasting System merged with the international department of the Broadcasting Corporation of China (BCC),

broadcasting to listeners around the world under the call signs “Radio Taipei International” and “The Voice of Asia.”

Programs were later combined under a unified call sign, “Radio Taipei International,” and eventually “Radio Taiwan International”

which reflects the radio station’s true mission as the national broadcaster of Taiwan.

Offering a wide variety of programs spanning from Mandarin Chinese lessons to Taiwanese history,

Radio Taiwan International provides listeners a chance to become acquainted with the unique experience of Taiwan.

For the next 60 years, the Central Broadcasting System persevered, continuing to broadcast on behalf of the nation, sharing information about Taiwan with the rest of the world.
