While some commuters opt to read print newspapers and others take the time to listen to music or podcasts, those in Cairo are able to take advantage of educational radio programming. Cairo underground stations are airing back-to-back 6 minute episodes for public transit passengers to listen to as they wait for their train. Kemet Radio is producing the educational content for people waiting on train platforms.
Executive Officer Ahmad Meshal said the radio service's mission is to spread culture and create awareness of Egyptian history and traditions. This includes educational radio segments on cinema, economic development, folk arts and food in Egypt as well as mini dramas. They will avoid divisive programming and instead aim to cover broadly-appealing material to the country's diverse population.
