VIBRANT PRESENCE  SINCE 1993

AKTINA FM, the first and only true bilingual Greek American Radio, delivers exceptional public radio programming and content for wide and diverse audiences in the New York City Metro area and worldwide over the Internet since 1993. It was founded and established on the FM dial and online by Elena Maroulleti, an independent journalist who is also the Producer and Host. It is owned and operated by AKTINA Productions, Inc., a non-profit and tax-exempt 501 (c) 3 Media and Arts Cultural Organization. AKTINA FM is preserved on the air through the generous contributions of its listeners and through underwriting. It was launched on New York’s public station WNYE 91.5FM in May of 1993 and soon after online. In late 2016 AKTINA FM became a full-fledged 24/7 Online Radio Station. Considering the unlimited advantages and benefits AKTINA FM enjoys as an online broadcaster, and more importantly the vast growth of its audience locally and nationwide in the U.S and worldwide, the decision was made in early 2021 to suspend its programs on 91.5FM which run for 28 consecutive years. During this transition, AKTINA FM successfully managed to migrate from 91.5FM to its online platform some 850,000 established listeners from the Tri-State area of New York and beyond.

BRIEF HISTORY

Launched initially as an hourly weekly bilingual Greek American radio show, AKTINA FM was welcomed on public station WNYE 91.5FM with unprecedented success becoming fast a very popular and highly rated radio show. Much of its success is attributed to its "unique" bilingual-language format which paved the way for AKTINA FM to quickly expand its broadcasting schedule each time there was a vacancy on the station.  By the year 2000, AKTINA FM was already a six-hour live show holding a prime time weekend slot which was further expanded in 2002 to nine hours. In 1994 AKTINA FM also further expanded its presence on the Internet with the introduction of additional live weekend programs streaming under the name AKTINA NET.  In 2000, AKTINA NET was renamed, AKTINA FM Greek American Internet Radio.  In late 2016 AKTINA FM became a full-fledged Online Radio Station streaming 24/7.
