Sawt Al Arab

Sawt Al Arab (Voice of the Arabs) was founded in 1953. At the time, it was one of the most popular radio station. The main medium through which President Gamal Abdel Nasser spread his will of Arab unity, Sawt Al Arab was therefore broadcasting his speeches calling for Arab unity and the struggle against colonialism. In recent decades, its popularity declined.

Sawt Al Arab is a state-owned radio station. As such, it managed by the National Media Authority. It is directed by Lamia Mahmoud, a veteran Egyptian radio host since 1985. Mahmoud worked as Director of practical radio training (2005-2009), and served as the Vice President of Sawt Al Arab. She was appointed as CEO in 2013

Nadia Mabrouk, was appointed as the President of the Egyptian Radio in 2015. Although she was supposed to retire, the National Media Authority issued a decision extending her stay in her post for three months in July 2018, and then followed it by another extension for 3 months at the end of September 2018. The Editor in chief of Saw Al Arab, Lamia Mahmoud, started working as a presenter in the Egyptian radio in 1985. In 2005, she moved to the position of director of practical training in the radio, and continued there until 2009.
