Kenya Radio Stations: List of All Radio Frequencies

  • You cannot deny the amount of love that Kenyans have for radio.

    Despite the rising number of online music streaming services like Youtube, Boom music, Spotify, Tidal and Apple Music, radio stations in Kenya have maintained their position as the number one option for most music lovers. 

    Whether it's in the matatu, at the office, or even when working in the shamba, radio has always been there to soothe the listeners’ ears.

    Apart from entertainment, radio stations in Kenya provide a great means of updates on all latest news and current information from Kenya and beyond to all Kenyan age groups; both literate and illiterate, in rural and urban areas. 

    Since the liberalization of the news media in the 1990s, there has been a significant increase in the number of radio stations in the country. This includes those that cater to a specific demographic.

    Part of the reason for this may be attributed to the fact that the price of radio stations’ licensees getting cheaper to acquire.

    This has made it more affordable for those willing to venture into the sector as evidenced by the fact that there were less than 10 radio stations in Kenya in 1999 but this has increased to over 100 in a number of years after.

    Although the freedom of media and freedom of expression are guaranteed in Kenya, all media houses including the radio stations in Kenya are regulated by a government body called the Media Council of Kenya(MCK). 

    This is an independent institution established according to the Media Act of 2007 to monitor the conduct and discipline of journalists in Kenya. 

    Hence, all radio stations in Kenya are allowed to go on air only when they have met the stipulated requirements of the Media Council of Kenya. 

    This mainly depends on the size of the radio station with the biggest radio stations in Kenya having stringent requirements to meet.

    This article provides the list of the most popular radio stations in Kenya and their frequencies to let you find your favorite radio station.
