Radio Kintoma benefits new broadcast equipment after damages from arson attack

Radio Kinto, a communication radio station in Voinjama, Lofa county has been fully restored following the destruction of its building and broadcast equipment to fire as a result of arson attack by unknown individuals.

In the early hours of April 23, last year, fire gutted the station, from an unknown source. Responders to the outbreak failed to extinguish the fire resulting in the burning of equipment and other assets of the broadcaster.

In a statement, the Association of Liberia Community Radios (ALICOR) announced the installation of a new set of modern broadcast equipment by its partner, Internews Liberia, with funding from the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID).

The set of equipment includes a broadcast transmitter, multiple channel mixer, studio microphones and headphones, among others.

The statement further read, “At ALICOR, it fills our hearts with immense joy to witness Radio Kintoma’s triumphant return to serve its community with renewed vigor and dedication. This partnership exemplifies the spirit of collaboration and solidarity, strengthening the fabric of our shared mission to empower communities through information.”

A special shout-out to USAID/Liberia for being the driving force behind this incredible initiative. Your commitment to providing funding for such impactful projects is a beacon of hope, creating positive ripples that resonate far and wide.”
