The English Service of China Radio International is celebrating its 70th anniversary.
Seventy years ago, a branch of Xinhua Radio Station, which later became China Radio International, began its first broadcast in English in Shexian County, Hebei Province.
The English Service now broadcasts more than 400 hours of programming each day across all of its platforms.
Its radio programs can be heard on local FM & AM stations globally.
Having started as a traditional radio broadcaster, CRI’s English Service has transformed into a multi-media platform that produces photos and text, audio reports, videos and live streaming.
The 68th Anniversary of the Founding of the People’s Republic of China.
