Subject: [B92press] The free voice of the real B92 is back


BELGRADE, August 2, 1999. Four months after the illegal

government seizure of the premises and frequency of the

award-winning independent Belgrade Radio B 92, the stations

staff resumed newscasts at 08.00 CET on Monday August 2,

under the name of B2-92.

Radio B92 was banned by Yugoslav telecommunications

authorities on March 24, but continued to broadcast via the

Internet and the Association of Independent Electronic Media

(ANEM) Radio and Television Networks until its premises were

forcefully occupied by a government appointee on April 2.

The B2-92 news program is produced by the real team of Radio

B92, all of whom refused to work for the new government

management currently using the B92 name and frequency, and

is broadcast on the third frequency 99.1 FM of the Belgrade

municipal station Studio B. The editorial independence of

Radio B2-92 is guaranteed in a contract between ANEM, of

which the real B92 is a founding member, and Studio B.

The B2-92 program, which is on air from 08.00 am to 20.00

CET seven days a week, has the familiar B92 mix of

professional news, cosmopolitan music and culture features.

A complete program schedule is available on B2-92s web



The B2-92 program is part of a broader campaign to restore

Radio B92 to its listeners and its rightful owners - its

staff. The campaign will involve various public actions in

Belgrade, cyberspace and abroad, which will be publicised on

the B2-92 program and on the stations web site (address as


B2-92 will shortly restore Real Audio web casts of its

programs on its Internet site, as well as its Internet news

bulletins in Serbian and in English. Listeners of the real

B92 outside Belgrade will also soon be able to receive B2-92

news programming via their local stations in the ANEM Radio

and Television Networks.

The real B92 team would like to thank the many people who

have supported and helped us during this difficult time, all

of our listeners, and in particular our partners in ANEM. We

hope you will stay tuned to our struggle to regain control

of our B92 name and frequency, and to free all other media

that have experienced similar censorship and repression.
