Zephyr Nassau Sunshine was what they called it in 1936 when the Telegraph Department launched the first radio station to be owned and operated by any government in the British West Indies.  With a 500-watt transmitter, the National Station, ZNS, was on the air for two hours a day, broadcasting BBC news, local news from the newspapers and music, also from the BBC.

Today the ZNS Radio Network has 5 stations that cover the entire nation.  In Nassau there’s 1540 AM, the National Voice, 104.5 FM and the Inspiration Station, 107.9 FM.  In Freeport, there’s Power 104.5 FM and The Light, 810 AM.
