IRIN Radio
IRIN radio for Somalia will take on a new name – Radio ERGO – from 1st July 2011, as the service is being taken over by IMS Productions Aps, a non-profit organization with headquarters in Copenhagen, Denmark.

A branch office of IMS Productions Aps has been opened in Nairobi, Kenya, to support and administer Radio ERGO. The radio will continue to broadcast daily humanitarian news and information in Somali and will work with the humanitarian community and other partners to produce the best humanitarian radio programming to serve Somali listeners.

IMS Productions Aps, supported by an advisory board of international NGOs and UN agencies working in Somalia, will maintain the radio service's position established by UN OCHA IRIN as a fair, balanced and neutral provider of information.

The word Ergo has great significance in the Somali language. It carries the essential meaning of mediators or envoys in the interest of people in need, and can also refer to those who mediate in conflicts.
