(Hollywood, FL) Oct. 21, 2014 – Global 24 Radio LLC announced today that its inaugural broadcast will go live at 7:00 p.m., Friday, Oct. 31 (0000 UTC November 1), with a line-up of new and well-known programs and around-the-clock English language programming. The broadcast can be heard 24 hours a day, 7 days a week on 9395 kHz on WRMI broadcasting from Okeechobee, Florida.

“We’re very excited about launching Global 24 and the important contributions it will make to shortwave radio listening – as both a medium worth preserving and a vital part of the modern media mix for so many listeners around the world,” said Phil Workman, general manager of Global 24. “Our broadcast will appeal to dedicated shortwave listeners (SWL) all over the world looking for breaking news, opinion and music.”

Global 24 aims to revitalize the shortwave medium by bringing general interest news and entertainment into sharper focus for listeners looking for high quality programming on a daily basis. Regular listeners will be informed, entertained and engaged in an ever more complex world.

According to Jeff White, general manager of WRMI, “Global 24 represents another step in the long overdue commercialization of shortwave radio. We are excited to be working with them on their ambitious program to engage and entertain a global audience.”

International, commercial shortwave broadcasting is not quite dead.  According to KC1APY, a group called Global 24 Radio LLC will launch a commercial shortwave radio station on Friday, 31 October 2014 (0000 UTC, 01 November 2014).  The station will feature “a lineup of new and well-known programs and around-the-clock English language programming on 9395 kHz over WRMI from Okeechobee, Florida.  While that location is excellent because of good ground conductivity, I trust the station will be using a decent antenna, such as as Sterba Curtain, to launch the signals.  At the very least, the station will serve as a good beacon for 30 meter signals.  I hope the station will air some amateur-radio related shows.
