Radio Corporation of China - The First Radio Station in China
Radio Corporation of China was the first radio station in China.
It was founded in January 1923 by American E.G. Osborn. It was not a radio station run by Chinese citizens, and was shutdown by the Northern warlords before 1927.
Radio stations became a new communication method, and the first Chinese-run radio station was established in Harbin. It went into operation in October 1926. Privately-run stations were established in Shanghai in March 1927.
The technology became vital to the struggle between the Communist Party of China and the Nationalist Party. The first major Chinese radio station established with a legit infrastructure was the Central Broadcasting System in 1928 by the Nationalist Party. The CPC would establish the Yan'an Xinhua Broadcasting Station in 1940.
