Cartographers of the Global Radio Landscape
The next edition of the "world’s most comprehensive and up-to-date guide to broadcasting" will be published in December 2022 in a printed and digital version. The "Directory of Global Broadcasting” was published by WRTH Publications Limited until 2022. The rights have now been transferred to Radio Data Center GmbH (RDC), based in Freising, Germany.
After seven decades as a book, the World Radio TV Handbook (WRTH), the "Directory of Global Broadcasting, will now also be available as a web app. "The directory is an indispensable reference for interested radio listeners, avid DXers and all those who move professionally in the world of radio," said Günter Lorenz, founder and CEO of Radio Data Center GmbH, on September 08, 2022. "We are pleased that it will also be available online as a web app from December 2022."
Radio Data Center GmbH (RDC) was created in 2012 to provide professional data delivery and services for broadcast radio-related businesses and industries. Günter Lorenz founded FMLIST, the world’s most comprehensive and up-to-date database of FM broadcasting, already in 1986. It went online in 2005 at fmlist.org and was soon followed by MWLIST, its counterpart for mediumwave and shortwave broadcasting.
Oliver Schmidt is CEO of RDC and Chairman of the Board of UKW/TV-Arbeitskreis e.V., the organisation that owns FMLIST, and publisher of Sender-Tabelle and European Radio Guide books. The worldwide RDC team defines their work, which extends the community-supported databases to a professional level, as “being cartographers of the global radio landscape”.
