On November 17, 2020, Aetter Radio started its broadcast on the frequency 107,2 FM
Radio Aetter won a frequency in last year's autumn tender. Until then, it broadcast online from a study at the Faculty of Mass Media Communication of UCM in Trnava, where it was established in 2011. According to the rules of the Broadcasting and Retransmission Council, applicants had one year to start broadcasting. Despite the current pandemic, they have taken all the necessary steps in advance.
The radio will profile itself as a music radio for the young urban population. The broadcast will bring current hits, British pop, dance and Slovak music. It also gives space to new songs from Slovakia and abroad.
The Aetter radio will broadcast on 107,2 FM. Listeners in Trnava and its surroundings will be able to tune in to it.
Rector of UCM prof. Boča:
What does it mean for me that as the only university in Slovakia we have our own radio with its own frequency?
Above all, we have extraordinary students who, under the guidance of extraordinary teachers, can do whatever they want.
Every success of students is also the success of the university, which tries to support, either financially or in another way (by providing premises, purchasing equipment), all the activities that students perform outside their studies.
Since taking up the position of rector, I have always tried to act in the spirit of the motto - Let's give the student what belongs to him. We have built several student rest areas, repaired and revitalized the dormitory rooms, and supported sports and cultural activities in all available ways. I am glad that in this way we will also benefit from our efforts to build a quality sound studio, as well as the efforts of faculty teachers, to prepare quality radio presenters and editors. Now they can test whether they have succeeded in this effort - directly in the broadcast on the state FM frequency.
Student Radio Aetter has a successful history of almost 10 years, and is beginning to write new chapters that will certainly contribute to the visibility not only of the parent Faculty of Mass Media Communication, but also of the entire University of Ss. Cyril and Methodius in Trnava. I am pleased that in this way the students will test the acquired theoretical knowledge and that they will assert themselves in the real media space.
I believe that the new radio on the air will prosper.
I congratulate all those who have contributed to this success and wish you and all of us a successful start, perseverance, good ideas and, above all, loyal listeners.
Congratulations to this success and we wish our colleagues from Faculty of Mass Media Communication the best start!
