Private AM radio on the rise in Italy

While state controlled Medium Wave or AM radio stations in Italy were reduced to a minimum of about 50 transmitters, all of them  re-broadcasting RAI first radio channel, private AM stations have started to appear in Italy over this (almost) empty band.

Effective Feb 9, 2011 NEXUS-IBA and European Gospel Radio are on the air on two AM (Medium Wave) frequencies, covering the city of Rome (population 2.7 million) and the North East of Italy (Venice, Padua, Verona, Bologna and vicinities, population around 3 million) from 8PM until 1AM Central European Time.

Following the tradition of a 30+ years old FM, Shortwave and now AM international relay service, IRRS (The Italian Radio Relay Service) and NEXUS-IBA  are carrying international programming from different sources from around the world, consisting mainly of news, information and dedicated segments of Christian radio (avail. Sundays only) in English.

1566 kHz covers the centre of Rome, while 1368 kHz is very well heard in the North-Eastern part of Italy, including Padua, Venice, Verona, Vicenza and Bologna. favoured by a quite clear channel all over continental Europe, several listeners are reproting reception as far away as Spain, Austria, Germany, Sweden and Finland during the evening and night.
