English-only FM Radio Station Launched

The radio station TBS (its handle stands for "Traffic Broadcasting System") started off as a project by Seoul City's government to give up-to-the-minute traffic news to drivers in and around the city. It soon became more than that - providing radio programs with fun, entertainment and music to local audiences, with traffic updates from time to time. There is also TBS TV, available by satellite, and in new technology there is TBS DMB, which means Koreans can listen to DMB anywhere through their cell phones. As of yesterday, Dec. 1, there is now TBS eFM – all English, all the time, for Seoul's English-speaking population.
