Click here for ICRT-related discussion in the forums at Taiwanease.com

For over three decades, International Community Radio Taipei (ICRT) has been a Taiwan market leader — and the listeners’ number-one choice for the best Western music, as well as entertainment, domestic and global news, community announcements, and public service.

Starting Monday January 14, 2013, ICRT is reaffirming its commitment to serving the community, both local and international.  Listeners will get more of their favorite DJs, more realtime reporting on what’s happening in Taiwan, more top-notch programming from leading broadcasters from around the world, and more special programs designed to serve the needs of our listeners, from learning English to better understanding life in Taiwan.  More of everything our listeners value!

Every morning, we’ll start the workday with the top news from Taiwan and around the world, plus special interviews with local newsmakers and commentators, as well as updates from the region, including Taichung, Tainan, Kaohsiung and Hong Kong.  Then, starting from 8am to 8pm, ICRT DJs Terry Engel, Vicki Lin and Joseph Lin will be your on-air hosts, providing outstanding music, entertainment, trivia, interviews with local and visiting celebrities, on-air games, listener call-outs and requests, and non-stop listening pleasure.  The fun will only be interrupted with regular top-of-the-hour news updates, as well as extended newscasts at lunch and dinner time, to recap what you’ve missed while busy at the office.

If that’s not enough, ICRT is also teaming up with the BBC, VOA, Deutsch Welle, and other world-renowned content providers to bring local listeners unique news and informational programming, music shows featuring tracks from the Americas, Europe, Africa, Asia, and Oceania, as well as classic rock and pop hits.

This is only a first step for ICRT.  As we move forward into the Year of the Snake, we will also be introducing new programming designed to help listeners improve their English, as well as new topical programming on travel and education.

ICRT FM 100 is a non-profit broadcaster serving Taiwan since 1979.  Operated by the Taipei International Community Cultural Foundation (TICCF), ICRT does not receive any public funding, and is instead supported through the generosity of our advertisers.  ICRT FM 100 broadcasts island-wide, with transmitters in Taipei, Sanyi, Jiayi and Kaohsiung.

ICRT’s mission is to serve the international community in Taiwan, and act as a bridge to the local community.  This is a mission we have faithfully executed for 34 years.  ICRT provides realtime updates on what’s happening in Taiwan, reports on emergencies affecting our audience, community announcements and interviews, as well as helping to bring the world to Taiwan.  We are committed to continuing our mission, and welcome any comments or suggestions.  Please visit www.icrt.com.tw for more information on our programming, or to leave a comment.

ICRT將為台灣廣播帶來更多元化的節目以及更好的社區服務

2013年1月13日

從二○一三年一月十四日開始,ICRT更加重視電台對社區以及國內外聽眾的服務承諾。聽眾隨時可以聽見自己喜愛的DJ們播放音樂和台灣大小事的及時報導。同時還可以收聽到各國頂尖廣播組織所製作的精彩節目。ICRT還為台灣聽眾量身打造全新形態、非常適合學習英文以及了解台灣風情民俗趣味的節目內容。嶄新的ICRT將是台灣最棒的收聽頻道。

台北國際社區廣播電台(ICRT)在台灣卅多年來,一直都是位居廣播市場領導的角色,同時也是聽眾接觸西方流行音樂的最佳選擇;節目內容包括娛樂、國內外新聞之外;同時也提供完整的社區服務。

聽眾起床最重要的事,就是收聽ICRT播報的國際與台灣的即時新聞;ICRT將和台中、台南、高雄,香港的駐地記者以及評論員連線對談當地新鮮事,陪伴聽眾度過每個早晨。上午八時到下午八時,ICRT的DJ Terry, Vicki和Joseph將不停歇的為聽眾播放好音樂以及暢談娛樂新聞,同時提供完善的生活資訊。每小時的整點新聞也會穿插在節目中。除此之外,擔心聽眾因為忙碌的工作錯過了新聞大小事,ICRT還體貼的為聽眾新增午餐和晚餐時段的新聞播報。

如果聽眾覺得還不過癮,ICRT和來自英國的BBC、美國之音、德國之聲以及其他世界知名的節目合作,提供聽眾更具特色的新聞內容。而來自美洲、歐洲、非洲、亞洲及大洋洲不同類型的音樂饗宴以及搖滾、流行類音樂節目,將提供聽眾更多樣的選擇。

而這些,都只是ICRT邁向蛇年送給聽眾的第一份禮物。接下來,ICRT還要端上教育、旅遊以及學習英文的全新節目菜色讓聽眾品嘗。

ICRT 的前身是美軍電台,但從一九七九年開始,即屬非營利廣播機構,由台北國際社區文化基金會營運;在台北、三義、嘉義和高雄的發射台,讓全台都能收聽到ICRT的優質節目。

ICRT的任務,是服務在台灣的國際友人和本地居民,同時並適切的擔任兩者之間的溝通橋梁,盡忠職守扮演這個角色已有三十四個年頭。ICRT另外還有一項重要的服務,就是把台灣發生的即時新聞、緊急事件、社區公告以及專訪還有世界動態,在第一時間透過廣播傳遞給聽眾朋友。

ICRT會繼續在崗位上努力為聽眾服務。ICRT非常歡迎各界任何建議和評論。若想知道更多節目資訊或願意提供寶貴意見給ICRT,請不吝前往www.icrt.com.tw留下訊息。

ICRT由衷的感謝聽眾忠實的支持。
