Chuvash National Radio ( Russian: Национальное радио Чувашии, Chuvash: Чӑваш наци радиовӗ) is a Chuvash-language radio station based in Cheboksary, broadcasting in many Chuvash Republic cities, and via the internet. [1]

Its director and chief editor is Oleg Prokopiev.


Chuvash National Radio began a test announcement on 25 April 2009, the same date as the annual Day of the Chuvash Language.

The formation of Chuvash National Radio occurred in three stages. The first stage was from April to May 2009, featuring news and musical programmes, as well as programmes for children. The second stage began on 1 September 2009 with news and programmes for children and youth and literary drama programmes. Since 1 January 2010, the radio station airs full-time programming.

The Ministry of Culture of the Chuvash Republic stated that the goal of creating a Chuvash radio station from the ground up is the development of a system of information support for the population, upholding constitutional law regarding the reception of socially significant information, and the ability to notify residents in case of emergency situations.



60% of programming is in the Chuvash language, 35% in Russian and 5% in other languages spoken in the Chuvash Republic. 30% of programs are informational, 30% educational and 20% drama and musical. Informational programs leave five hours per day.[ clarification needed]

Radio frequencies

On the basis of the transferring equipment of branch FGUP «Radio television transmitting centre» two frequencies are assigned to Chuvash National Radio: VHF 71.41 MHz (the transmitter is located in Ibresi) and FM 105.0 MHz (the transmitter is located in Tsivilsk). By means of these transmitters 80% of the territory of the Chuvash Republic, except for Cheboksary and Novocheboksarsk, is covered. According to federal law, on-air broadcasting in cities with a population of over 100,000 is authorized only on the basis of a license. It, in turn, is given out after federal competition is carried out.[ clarification needed] Therefore, as of 2009 in Cheboksary and Novocheboksarsk it is only possible to listen to Chuvash National Radio broadcasts on the "third button" wire announcement.[ clarification needed]

Online broadcast

The radio's programming is broadcast online using Microsoft Media Server.


There are a number of program topics and formats. Topics include event announcements, memorial calendars, incidents, sports news, interviews, and commentary.

Musical programmes are aired no less than three hours per day: a "musical mix" (live concerts), youth musical hour and musical blocks per programme for children and youth, in blocks of social programs. Popular music of various genres – in Chuvash and Russian as well as foreign music – is offered to listeners.

Special place is given to programs on public health services, social policy, and education issues. Educational programmes are divided by age: for young children, school-aged children and youth.

Literary-drama programs are aired on the days off.[ clarification needed] In these blocks news, the literary-drama, musical, children's and youth programs, the special program «Year of the farmer», the total information-analytical program, programs of a social orientation and the special project «the House and an economy» also are assumed.

Chuvash National Radio also features radio performances from the Chuvash State Academic Drama Theater and the Chuvash State Youth Theater.

Each region and city in the Chuvash Republic have the certain day of an announcement. Daily "inclusions" from rural area and a city of Chuvashiya are on air planned.
