What is ICRT?
International Community Radio Taipei (ICRT) is Taiwan’s only English language broadcaster, with the mission of bridging cultural gaps and integrating the resources of Taiwan’s local and international communities for the ROC’s continued growth and prosperity. Its wide variety of programs are designed to meet the diverse and ever-growing needs of Taiwan. It is also a valuable tool for Taiwan residents to better understand English and join the global community. ICRT’s programming focuses on music, news and entertainment. Their primary mandate is to serve the expatriate community in Taiwan, which constitutes about 5% of our audience, and to act as a cultural bridge to our local listeners, which makes up the other 95%.
History of ICRT
ICRT was born in 1979, after the break in diplomatic relations between Taipei and Washington. From 1957 to 1979, the station’s predecessor, Armed Forces Network in Taiwan, served the needs of the US military then stationed on the island. AFNT was sold to the Taiwan government for US$1 as the American troops pulled out. They are completely self-supporting, receive no government funding, and are an independent, non-profit organization.
Programs & DJ’s
There are a wide variety of programs played on ICRT including: Latin Beats, Rock of Ages, Electro Breeze, Jazz Trax, Asia Pop 40, Block Party, Greatest Hits and more! To match the stations assortment of programs, ICRT also has a diverse team of DJ’s hailing from America, Canada, Peru and of course Taiwan. Their mixture of backgrounds keeps the station fresh and exciting.
