English domestic radio broadcasts in South Korea

I’m sure that several English radio stations are available in South Korea.

For a wider variety, listening to online radio is good option because of the widespread adoption of the internet in this country.

 

Public broadcasters

Korean Broadcasting System (KBS radio)

KBS World Radio broadcasts news, sports, weather, music, interviews as well as cultural information in more than 10 languages.

It seems that their English services are only on the internet and short wave.

Korean Educational Broadcasting System (EBS-radio)

It’s an educational television and radio network covering South Korean territory, and the only major South Korean radio and television network without a separate regional service.

They're frequented by middle and high school students for their English study programming, and also for adults with language programming for Chinese, German, French, etc.

AFN - American Forces Network in Korea

A lot of transmitter sites are located.

They operate television stations as well, but those are only available to US SOFA status personnel with a decoder, but radio services can be received by anyone.

 

Private / Commercial stations

TBS e-FM (101.3MHz) in Seoul; This station broadcasts news about Korea and other radio programming related to sports, events, history, entertainment, the economy, etc.
