Coverage: Mogadishu and surrounding areas

This privately owned station is based in Bakara Market, Mogadishu. It was founded in 2009. Danan Radio broadcasts 14 hours a day (6:00-9:00 and 12:00-23:00) in Mogadishu and its surroundings. The station broadcasts news programs, entertainment, women, youth, sports and music programmes.

The station has 20 employees (including females) and 5 trainees. It is a member of SIMHA and has a good relation with NUSOJ and gets some incomes from advertisement.

Located in Bakara market, the radio saw its audience shrink as it was facing Al Shabaab censorship; the group was intervening in the editorial policy, forbidding the radio from playing music or broadcasting any sports programs. This lead most of the senior reporters to join other radios located in the areas controlled by the government.
