|Way back in 1979, a few idealistic visionaries laid the groundwork for what was to become NEXUS-International Broadcasting Association. The idea was to seize the opportunity of the newly-emerging concept of free radio in Europe, and in Italy in particular. Under the name Globe Radio, they were among the first to put a private FM station on the air in the northern Italian metropolis of Milan. And in 1988, a powerful shortwave outlet - IRRS-Shortwave - was added to give NEXUS-IBA an international radio voice. And in 1994, Internet services were added, with NEXUS-IBA becoming Europe's first website to offer streaming audio and video services.|
|Today, NEXUS-International Broadcasting Association is chartered by law as a strictly non-profit, all-volunteer association. But the purpose and focus of that original pioneering idea have not changed: making shortwave and now Internet broadcasting facilities available to its members and other clients at the lowest possible cost.
Our dedication to the concept of free expression has also remained unchanged, with a policy of non-interference in content, except in cases where it may clearly violate Italian or other legislation. As a result, our programming is quite diverse, and includes everything from disc jockey shows to religion, philosophy, culture, science and technology, and even old radio drama.
NEXUS-International Broadcasting Association is a coalition of broadcasters and independent programme producers, and has enjoys official status as a United Nations Non-Governmental Organization (NGO).
