Nepal Broadcast History:

The first station in Nepal was a 250 watt station opened in 1951. The first FM came on in November 1995.


There is no private broadcasting in Nepal. Radio Nepal operates under the jurisdiction of the Ministry of Communications, the Secretary of whom is the Chairman of Radio Nepal.

A very nice description of the current Radio Nepal has been provided by Ravin Lama
