The first commercial radio channel - RB2- started operating in April 1992 as a government pilot project to find ways to offset increasing expenditure through advertising. It initially utilised a 100-watt transmitter, whose coverage extended 50 km around the capital city, Gaborone, however, the radio, dubbed "FM 103" (from its initial Gaborone reception frequency), can now be tuned to across the country. RB 2 caters for an audience ranging in age from 15 to 45 years comprising mainly urban and suburban dwellers. The radio station features contemporary entertainment appealing especially to the younger members of society and young urban professionals. RB 2 also carries the full Radio Botswana news bulletins at 6 a.m., 7 a.m., 1 p.m., 6 p.m., 8 p.m. and 9 p.m. every weekday. Bulletins are also available during weekends. Unlike its sister channel RB 2 broadcasts around the clock.
