Japan To Say ‘Sayonara’ to AM Radio?


Travel across Europe, and you’ll find few medium-wave choices on the AM dial. In Madrid, seven spoken word stations can be found. In Amsterdam, two AM stations can be heard. But in such cities as Paris, Munich, Florence and Vienna, there are no longer any AM stations to tune to.

In Asia, AM’s resilience is notable, with many stations to tune to in Taipei, Manila, and across Australia and New Zealand. At present, Japan is a locale where AM radio lives, too. But, according to local media reports, that may not be the case in the next several months.
