DVB to switch from shortwave radio to online broadcast

Democratic Voice of Burma (DVB), the country's longest running exile broadcaster, which first aired in 1992, will enter a new phase on 26 October, switching from shortwave to online radio.
"Surveys show fewer people listen to shortwave nowadays, therefore DVB is focusing more of its content on new digital media and TV output, which will also be available via Internet and mobile phones," said Aye Chan Naing, executive director of DVB Multimedia Group.
October 2014 marks the end of an era for DVB radio, which was arguably the pioneer of Burmese exile broadcasting.
