About English Service (Radio Sri Lanka)

History of Radio Sri Lanka

The inception of radio broadcasting in Sri Lanka was in 1924, and the language of broadcasting was English.
It all began when an Englishman set up an experimental radio transmitter with the intention of communicating with the ships that called at the Colombo Harbour. News, Weather Reports, Messages, Greetings, Classical and Dance Music was broadcast through this transmitter.
In time, this little amateur radio transmission effort came to be known as COLOMBO CALLING. All operations were carried out from a small room at the General Post Office, Colombo Fort. This little ‘station’ is the third oldest radio transmission station in the world!
English Language broadcasting in Sri Lanka has come a long way, with full support from the state in the form of funds and equipment.
Radio broadcasting was formalized with the setting up of the Ceylon Broadcasting Corporation in 1967.
At the beginning, English language broadcasts were done through two different channels.
National Service: which aired spoken word programs like interviews, dramas, discussions, speeches, classical music, etc.
Commercial Service: this channel broadcast programs with commercial content like popular music, request programs, radio advertisements, quiz programs, etc.
News was broadcast simultaneously from both the alone channels.
About 03 decades ago, it was decided to amalgamate both the above channels, and the result was the “English Service”. The program content had to be shared into different ‘belts’ which featured different types of programs. In other words, broadcast times was divided into different belts, broadcasting National and Commercial content.
The English Service was re-named as Radio Sri Lanka in 2011, and continues its programs as before, and the frequencies of Radio Sri Lanka (RSL) are 97.4 and 97.6FM.
