About Us

Radio Numydia is the community radio station for Imazighen. Radio Numydia is the first community station in the United States of America to be awarded full time community broadcast license in 2005. Radio Numydia began broadcasting on a full-time basis in April 2005. Community radio licenses are intended for social gain and community empowerment.
What is Community Radio?
Community radio stations are non-profit social enterprises, run for, and by, the community. It offers anyone and everyone the opportunity to get involved with radio, whether it is creating their own radio show, helping with background production, or developing their skills in the journalism side of a radio station. The purpose of a community radio station is to serve the community, to provide this access to radio involvement, but also to deliver local radio that can freely broadcast content and music for the community, rather than a target market, particularly as commercial stations are increasingly consolidated by large media corporations.

Radio Numydia has been running for 16 years, and it is managed by a small team of resolute staff and ran by Sonia Ladjadj, who create shows alongside providing background production and journalism support.
Radio Numydia offers volunteers the unique opportunity to develop new skills by getting involved in radio presentation and production. Despite already having incredible input from members of the community, we are always looking for more people to get involved with Radio Numydia, so if being involved in running a radio station, in whichever role you choose, is something that would be of interest to you, please fill out the Get involved form.
