Radio Simba is a privately owned station that was founded on July 2006. This station is located in Bakara market, Hawlwadag district. It broadcasts in Mogadishu and surrounding regions. It airs 14 hours a day; 6:00-9:00 and 12:00-23:00. The radio had 26 staff members (6 trainees/volunteers). It gets incomes from advertisement. The station’s programming includes news, sport, music, social programs, health programs and dramas.

Radio Simba lost most of its audience during Al Shaabab presence in Mogadishu when the station was forced not to play music or air sport programs, the news was censored and the interference with editorial policy, equally constant. Most of the senior reporters fled from the radio and joined the radios located in the areas controlled by the government. The audience of Radio Simba has started increasing again over the last 6 months.
