Radio Liban Libre

Radio of the Lebanese Forces, Radio Liban Libre (RLL) was founded in the summer of 1978 by a decision of Bachir Gemayel, the founder of the Lebanese Forces who was elected President of the Lebanese Republic in 1982 but was assassinated before taking office. Sejaan Kazzi (who served as Labor Minister from 2013 to 2016) was the radio’s first director. RLL obtained its license in 1996, after playing a political and media-centered role during the civil war, voicing the views of the Lebanese Forces. It is currently one of the Lebanese Forces’ media outlets, and it is broadcast via shortwaves on: 102.3, 102.5, and 102.7 FM, covering various areas of Lebanon and some areas of neighboring countries. It provides news bulletins, as well as political, economic, social and sports programs, music and songs. It is currently run by Antoine Mrad.
