All India Radio Aizawl  Regional News Unit



The Regional News Unit at AIR, Aizawl started functioning in 1975 with one post each of Assistant News Editor, Correspondent and News Reader-cum-Translator sanctioned for the unit. It started with a daily Mizo news bulletin of 5 minutes duration. The duration was extended to 10 minutes from January 1977. At present the news unit is also producing a morning news bulletin for 10 minutes.

Evening Bulletin : 6.30 p.m – 6.40 p.m
Morning Bulletin : 7.30 a.m – 7.40 a.m

The news unit also originates weekly news commentaries, district newsletters and state newsletters. Reviews of the proceedings of the State Legislative Assembly are also originated as and when the state Assembly is in session.

The regional news bulletin in Mizo is relayed by AIR Lunglei every evening through shortwave. There have, however, been complaints over the reception of the relayed news since shortwave reception of AIR Aizawl signals at Lunglei is poor. This problem is however expected to be solved once the satellite uplinking facilities at AIR Aizawl start functioning.

AIR Aizawl relays all the major and most of the hourly national bulletins in English and Hindi. It also relays Sports News in English every evening besides relaying the North East News in English from Shillong.

The Regional News Unit at AIR Aizawl is equipped with a computer, fax, Television connected with local cable and electronic teleprinter of PTI. The Station has 6 Part Time Correspondents one each at Saiha, Lunglei, Champhai, Kolasib, Serchhip and Mamit. Proposal for sanction of Part Time Correspondent posts for other district headquarters of the state is pending underway. The RNU has no sanctioned post of Stenographer or Typist. The Unit has however been able to maintain a high degree of credibility and appreciation from the public in Mizoram.
