to receive permission for radio air time, BosNewsLife learned Saturday, October 27. Yes Radio aims at family oriented Christian programs, including music shows, and has not ruled out English language news in the near future.
"It steps to public with a modern program, focusing on believers, but unbelievers too," said Spokesman Imre Nagy in a statement. "Yes radio says yes to Life," he added.
The Budapest based station did not obtain a frequency earlier this year, after the Hungarian authorities awarded it to an ultra right wing party. In addition Hungarian Gypsies who prefer to be known as Roma also received a frequency in the Hungarian Capital.
However Spokesman Imre Nagy stressed that Yes Radio "has decided to re-apply at the next frequency application chance," most likely in Budapest. He said Yes Radio "got the second position just 1 point behind – during the recent frequency application procedure," and suggested that his staff will not give up.
In addition Yes Radio wants to widen relations and co-operation to churches, and christian organizations, he said. The Catholic Church has been involved in radio programs, but evangelical programs remain a new commodity in post Communist Hungary.
The Yes Radio staff hopes to fill that void with Christ centered programs, in close co-operation with all denominations.
