  About Us  

In the war of “100 days” in summer 1978, as it was called, between the Syrian forces and the Lebanese forces with Cheikh Bachir Gemayel its leader, a live strong sound associated with national enthusiastic music marking the birth of “Radio Free Lebanon – Radio of the Lebanese resistance”. It was a decision taken by Cheikh Bachir in contribution of a large number of wise intellectual people, multimedia journalists (experts in journalism), and a group of people graduated from faculties of information. Radio Free Lebanon’s first director was Sejaan Al Azzi. Charl Malek, great thinker, was the one who has chosen its name ( was the one to choose its name), knowing that this radio is the oldest company the Lebanese Forces has established.

First the radio used to broadcast from some rooms in saint Peter & Paul monastery in a village called Al Azra in Kesrwan. Few months later, it moved to another building in Adonis Zouk Mosbeh in Kesrwan, 12 km far from north Beirut, to move later on in 2003 to another building in the same area and owning three floors fully equipped of the greatest and latest characteristics:

-          UNDERGROUND FLOOR, includes live broadcast studios, and production ones as well as a department of program execution, radio announcers’ offices( broadcasters’ offices) and guests’ special room.

-          FIRST FLOOR, is for news and technical department

-          SECOND FLOOR, is for the direction, and department of accounting. In addition to a huge conference room (meeting room).

 

We are working now on allocating a hall to be as a RADIOPHONIC museum that shows (defines) the history of radio in general and in particular Radio Free Lebanon’s one. It shows samples of different devices, from the oldest to the newest ones, such as mixer, mechanical recording machines and samples of news bulletin and programs written and recorded since more than a third of a century. In addition to radio station equipment, books and publishing related to the same subject. This RADIOPHONIC museum will be available for all researchers, media professionals, and university students.

During the war, Radio Free Lebanon executed its political and media role in which it has pronounced out loud the Lebanese forces’ point of view of the trials of domination on Lebanon. This radio was also distinguished for:

- being the first to broadcast the news especially those concerning security and was well known to be the first to know the target of the bomb before it hits the point, especially that it has a good number of reporters all over the region the fact that helped to save lives of millions of citizens.

 - adopting the exclusive broadcast of Lebanese music and production which contributed in the consolidation of the Lebanese song, and in the strengthening of the Lebanese culture through historical, intellectual, literary and heritage programs in which several people contributed such as: Dr. Charles Malek, the poet Saiid Akel, father Michel Hayek, Dr. Fouad Freim El Boustany, father Boulos Nehmen and other people of intelligentsia and literature.

After the war ended, the radio remained a voice of the Lebanese forces and committed to the path of civil peace despite the imbalance that marked the trusteeship period and the strengthening up that culminated with decision of the solution of the Lebanese forces party and arresting its leader doctor Samir Geagea and prevent the broadcast of political news and programs aiming to shut up Free Radio Lebanon and medias-pro.

After the first director Sejaan Al Azzi, Mr. Kamal Al Chartouny took over the management of the radio for few months in 1985, then Mr. Afif Malkoun took his place until 1991 and later on Mr. Chawki Abou Sleimen who stayed as its chairman general manager till the beginning of 2008. In 2008, Mr. Antoine Mrad, became the chairman and Mr. Makarios Salemeh as the general Manager. In 2013, Mr. Fadi Salameh became the chairman.

With the Cedar revolution and the independence uprising in 14 February 2005 and the release of Dr. Samir Geagea from prison, political atmosphere has changed and security environment that was suppressing liberty and media has declined so Radio free Lebanon regained its identity gradually and committed to be open on all other parties. In 2008, Mr. Antoine Mrad, who was the director of news room and political programs, became the chairman of the boards of directors and Mr. Makarios Salemeh became the general director after being its financial and administrative director.
