NameABC Cambodia - FM 107.5

ABC Cambodia Radio was established in 2008 by Seng Bunveng, also known as “Aja A”, and a reportedly pro-CPP commentator.
ABC Cambodia is famous for its breaking information about road traffic and accidents. Its approach to let people call in to report about accidents made it popular, but also created confusion when the information could not be verified in time. Moreover, during the 2013 electoral campaign, Seng Bunveng, used a morning time slot to predict a military coup if the CNRP were to win the election. The day after and 3 days before the election, all its programmers, except music, songs and some ads were shut down by the Ministry of Information after the President of the National Electoral Committee asked him to stop his provocative commentaries [WMC, 2013]. Seng Bunveng was sued for incitement by the opposition party for that commentary. The court, however, has not taken any action about the case yet.

After the elections, ABC resumed broadcasting and repeatedly called for mass rallies in Phnom Penh to support King Norodom Sihamoni’s call for the opposition to join the inaugural National Assembly session. Late 2013, Bunveng also used its radio to encourage students to report on any teachers speaking about politics in class.

ABC Cambodia is the most popular radio stations among general public [CMRD, 2015] as well as among youth in Cambodia [BBC Media Action, 2014, p.13].
