RTI's History

RTI is one of the world's oldest radio stations in operations today and was established in 1928 by the Republic of China (ROC) government as the Central Broadcasting System (CBS) in Nanjing, China. It followed the ROC government from city to city during and after WWII, eventually coming to Taipei, Taiwan.

In 1998, CBS merged with the international department of the Broadcasting Corporation of China (BCC), and began broadcasting around the world as Radio Taipei International and The Voice of Asia. In 2002, it was renamed Radio Taiwan International.
