KPK launches radio streaming, supported by Basel Institute on Governance

The Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) of Indonesia successfully launched its radio streaming service on August 17, 2013. This project has been developed over the last 10 months with the support form the Basel Institute on Governance’s Public Governance division and funding from GIZ.

The launch of “Kanal KPK” came as part of KPK’s efforts to expand communication channels with stakeholders and allow for direct exchange of information and dialogue. Commenting on the initiative, Commissioner Bambang Widjojanto said at the launch that the radio-streaming service would enable KPK to communicate with all the people of Indonesia. He further elaborated that the media has reported on several issues but have not thoroughly covered the topic of corruption, and the launch of Kanal KPK aims to fill this gap.

The Institute’s team of experts worked closely with KPK on setting up the radio department. This included strategic planning support, on-job training, developing the Kanal KPK brand, defining the key messages, developing the schedule of programs and providing on-site support before and after the launch.
