Japan’s NHK had considered in its fiscal year 2021-2023 management plan a reduction of radio (MW and FM) from three waves to two waves in fiscal year 2025.
However, the draft management plan for fiscal years 2024-2026 announced today, October 10, states that this reduction will begin in fiscal year 2026.
This management plan will be finalized by next January, and if the plan is approved as is, the radio reduction will take place in fiscal year 2026.
Specifically, Radio 2 would be eliminated and Radio 2 programming would be shifted to Radio 1 and FM.
