Radio Taiwan International serves as the “voice of Taiwan” also. It is established by the government in Taiwan, and it is also the only public media organization, which provides the international broadcasting. It provides about 13 languages, such as mandarins, Hakka, Cantonese, English, and Japanese etc. It is the first Chinese radio station that connects with a live broadcast.

However, when I connect the link of the network, I do not get any political news but with case news instead. They offer the most popular news, blogs, and the most critical issues there but not about government officers.

At first, they belong to the mainland, but after divide of China, they move to Taiwan with Kuomintang. After moving to Taiwan, they became “Voice of Asia” with support of Kuomintang to focus on Asian areas. In 1981, they signed a contract with the Family Radio of the United States to report in North America.
