Since its first started broadcasting in 1928 as East African Broadcasting Corporation (EABC) when Kenya was a British colony, the national broadcaster has grown into a multimedia international broadcast service providing news and programming in more than 20 languages.
Its first broadcast was in English targeting the colonial masters then Africans during the World War II merely to update relatives of African soldiers of what was happening at the war front.
In 1953, Kiswahili Service was established under the African Broadcasting Service (ABS) followed by Dholuo, Kikuyu, Kinandi, Kiluhya, Kikamba and Arabic.
Six years later, regional radios were rolled out as Sauti ya Mvita in Mombasa, Mount Kenya Station in Nyeri and Lake Station in Kisumu.
After Kenya attained independence in 1963, the desire to enhance the authority of the government grew and in 1964 the Kenya Broadcasting Corporation was nationalized through an act of Parliament and became the Voice of Kenya (VoK).
Since its establishment, KBC journalists and presenters have been on the scene to cover and broadcast major world events such as politics, sports, discoveries and so on. The stations have also churned out informative and entertaining content to millions of listeners globally.
As globe marks the World Radio Day, KBC deemed it fit to commemorate its 93rd birthday in broadcasting in Kenya. This was an occasion for the station to cast its mind back to the services rendered through the years.
