Algeria's radio broadcasting stations are state-run - as are the television stations. Algeria has some 17 radio stations. Algerian Radio is a government operated station that broadcasts Channel 1, Channel 2 and Channel 3 as well as several provincial radio stations.

Other Algerian radio stations and channels are Algeria’s El Bhadja Radio Station, Radio Annaba, Radio El Bahia, Radio Sidi Bel Abbes, El Radio Cirta FM, Radio Coran, Radio Culture, Radio Mitidja, Radio D’Adrar, Radio Ghardaia, Ziban Radio, Frequences Du Reseau FM and Radio Soummam. Kabyle Radio is the only Berber radio station in Algeria.

Algerian information radio stations provide up-to-date news and discussions. It cannot, however, be guaranteed that the news will not be censored as the government imposes strict control measures over news content. For unrestricted news coverage, you can purchase one of the local newspapers. You can also listen to Algerian radio stations online.
