Radio Kantipur is the first commercial radio channel in the country and also the most popular. With a portfolio of iconic radio programmes, which ranges from news to infotainment for people both young and seasoned, Radio Kantipur keeps its listeners connected to each other and to the modern world.
For about three years until October 1998, Radio Kantipur bought a three-hour slot in the national portal of Radio Nepal and broadcasted its programmes. When it obtained its licence to air independently, it became the first commercial radio channel in the country. Today, it is the most popular FM station in Nepal.
Radio Kantipur is popular for its well-crafted programmes, some of which provide information and entertainment while others report news and provide timely updates on developing stories. It is technically sound and its creative team-members work hard to retain the trust of Nepali listeners.
