English domestic radio broadcasts in Taiwan

I've been to Taipei four times. (two travels were only transfer...)

As for Taiwan, I guess two English broadcasters are available.


Radio Taiwan International (RTI)

They're one of the world's oldest radio stations that is still in operation today, broadcasting news and programs in 13 languages to the rest of the world.

Offering a wide variety of programs spanning from Chinese-Mandarin lessons to Taiwanese history.

RTI provides listeners a chance to become acquainted with the unique experience of Taiwan.

They mainly broadcast by the internet and short wave, however the MW service in English, targeted for Philippines, is still available on 1359kHz. (600kW / daily 11pm -12pm UTC)

International Community Radio Taipei (ICRT)

On 100.7MHz (Taipei), 100.1MHz (central), 100.8MHz (Chiayi area)

They state that the only private English language domestic broadcaster in Taiwan, with the mission of bridging cultural gaps, integrating the resources of Taiwan’s local, international communities for the ROC’s continued growth, and prosperity.

ICRT FM100 is an essential part of many people’s lives for news and entertainment. 

Its wide variety of programs are designed to meet the diverse and ever-growing needs of Taiwan. 

Also a valuable tool for Taiwan residents to better understanding English and join the global community.
