Radio and TV
Way back in 1979, a few idealistic visionaries laid the groundwork for what was to become NEXUS-International Broadcasting Association. The idea was to seise the opportunity of the newly-emerging concept of free radio in Europe, and in Italy in particular. Under the name Globe Radio Milan, they were among the first to put a private FM station on the air in the northern Italian metropolitan city of Milan. And in 1988, a powerful shortwave outlet – IRRS-Shortwave (the Italian Radio Relay Service) – was added to give NEXUS-IBA an international radio voice. In 1994, Internet services were added, with NEXUS-IBA becoming Europe’s first website to offer – as of 1995 – streaming audio and, later, also video streaming services via our global cloud & CDN infrastructure and a revolutionary technology for content distribution named WorldDirector.
Our programs consist of a unique mix of international news and feature programs in English, dealing with politics, culture, religion, and global issues related to children, women, human rights, poverty alleviation, law, crime prevention, humanitarian aid, economic development, peace and security around the world. More programmes in other languages (Italian, French, Spanish, German) and local African languages or dialects are beamed to listeners in specific target areas in Europe, Africa, Asia/Pacific and the Middle East.
Two dedicated channels (European Gospel Radio on Shortwave and AM radio in Europe & All Gospel Radio 24/7 streaming live) broadcast Christian news, Gospel music and Bible preaching programs on behalf of several Christian MInistries from around the world, are part of our International Christian missions media offer. Our associated Christian radio Ministries agree that Shortwave and streaming Radio are among the greatest ways that the Gospel can be spread throughout the world.
Since 1979, our stations have been also relaying programs from major international broadcasters, such as VOA (Voice of America), Deutsche Welle, BBC, Radio Nederland, Swiss Radio International (SRI), Radio China International (CRI), South African Broadcasting Corporation (SABC), United Nations Radio, UNESCO Radio, Family Radio, La Buona Novella Broadcasts and many others.
Since 1988, NEXUS-International Broadcasting Association has been chartered as a strictly non-profit, all-volunteer association by Italian law. The purpose and focus of the original pioneering idea have not changed, i.e. making Shortwave, AM/Medium Wave, TV and Internet broadcasting facilities available to our members and, occasionally, to a small number of commercial clients at the lowest possible cost.
Our dedication to the concept of free expression has also remained unchanged since 1979, with a policy of non-interference in content, except in cases where it may violate Italian or other legislation. As a result, our programming is quite diverse and includes everything from disc jockey shows to religion, philosophy, culture, science and technology, and even old radio drama.
NEXUS-International Broadcasting Association is a coalition of broadcasters and independent programme producers and enjoys official status as a United Nations Non-Governmental Organization (NGO).
