Then and Now

LM Radio has a rich history that dates back to its inception as “Lourenço Marques Radio” in 1936, broadcasting via shortwave to South Africa and Rhodesia. However, in 1975, the station was shut down by the government of the newly independent Mozambique. Fast forward to the present day, LM Radio SA was granted a Commercial Broadcasting Licence by Icasa and went On Air in July of 2017.
