Two new private radio stations in Syria

Two new radio stations have been licensed in Syria. Both of them are completely in private hands.

Syria Al-Ghad (The Syria of Tomorrow) and Style FM - thought to be a pop music station a la Lebanon's Radio 1 - are soon to broadcast.

Both of the new licences have come out of the Party Conference, which liberalised Syria's media laws. A private TV station was given the go ahead earlier in the year, and a media conference, run by Britain's Press Association (the UK's largest news agency) was held in Homs.
