Radio France switches off Medium Wave transmissions
Since midnight on 31st December 2015. Radio France programs are no longer broadcast on the Medium Wave band. Services concerned are France Info, France bleu RCFM et France Bleu Elsass. Broadcasting on Medium Wave, started between 1937 and 1944, is considered obsolete, with the number of Medium Wave listeners being marginal. This step is part of an economy plan at Radio France. It will be followed by the cessation of Long Wave broadcasts on 31st December 2016.
