AmmanNet radio began broadcasting terrestrially on 92.4 FM in the Amman metropolitan area in the summer of 2005. According to the license, the content included general programming excluding politics and news. But in September of the same year, it became the first independent radio station to broadcast news in Amman. Early in January 2008, the name of AmmanNet radio was changed to Radio Al-Balad while AmmanNet.net remained as a news website. The radio and the site are managed by the Community Media Network (CMN), which is a not-for profit organization, registered in March 19th, 2007 under number (156) with the goal to manage media and cultural projects throughout the Kingdom of Jordan. CMN has a Board of Directors that supervises the radio and website. Community radios are a successful means of stimulating the development of communication between citizens and the community with the aim to raise the level of cooperation within the same society. They rely on the principle of voluntary work, public service and focus on the area of concern in the local community. Although the Arab world lacks community radios, they had attracted the attention of the social and community development activists. We dedicate our website and airwaves to fill this need. Al-Balad radio provides a panorama of programs starting with the review of the daily press to the morning show “tallet subuh”, sports review, the musical program “Fi Al-bal Ughniya” (song in mind), “street talk”, “haqi” (legal awareness), “school radio”, “youth on FM”, “techno life”, “sawa mniqdar” (young people achievements), “eye on the media” and the economic program “made in Jordan”.
