In the month of October 2007, Radio Sevan, the Armenian FM radio station broadcasting live from Lebanon, emitted its first wave of transmission to an eager community of listeners. At first, music was the primary source of entertainment with regular news intervals. A steady growth of listeners paralleled an increase in the range of programming to include specialized cultural, political and educational shows, event coverage, as well as local, international and Armenian news. Committed to maintaining consistently high programming standards throughout its schedule, Radio Sevan strove to give Armenian artists from various musical genres, a supportive forum in which to showcase their talent. The essence of its mission was simple; to unite all Armenians living in Lebanon and the Diaspora, through music. By extending its cultural reach locally and worldwide, Radio Sevan has become a unique and valuable community resource.
