Based in Warsaw, Polish Radio’s mission is to inform the world and the Polish diaspora of the most important developments in Poland and to put the Polish perspective on international issues, front and center. Broadcasting in five languages including Polish, Russian, English, Ukrainian and Belarusian, Polish Radio’s programing features national and international news, Polish foreign policy, the economy, business and foreign investment, as well as scientific and cultural achievements.

News from Poland in English broadcasts daily at 2:00 p.m. Central European Time (8:00 p.m. US-Eastern Standard Time) covering news, press reviews, and interviews with leading experts on contemporary topics. The Ukrainian Show, which reports on the situation between the Ukraine and Russia daily, airs at 7:30 p.m. CET. The Belarusian Program is also broadcast daily providing news and information that people in Belarus cannot access otherwise.

“We try to be heard everywhere. We know it is popular to listen to radio by phone, particularly in the U.S., and AudioNow is helping us reach our potential, expanding our audience there,” remarks Joachim Ciecierski, the head of multi-media for Polish Radio.
