The radio station was founded by broadcast journalist, Mohamed Said Ouafi, together with veteran broadcast newsman, Dr. Atef Abdel-Gawad and a group of professional Arab journalists in the Washington, DC area. AC Radio aims at building bridges between the Arab community in the USA and the rest of the world. AC Radio, known in Arabic as "Sawt Al Jaliyah", also aims at deepening the principles of constructive dialogue among various viewpoints. It seeks to steer the community, and Arabs everywhere, away from fanaticism, bigotry and extremism. AC Radio fills a void in the U.S. Arab community's media world and seeks to establish a foothold for the Arab voice on air. One of its most Important objectives is to present a civilized image of Arabs through building bridges among them first and then expanding to a multi- lingual radio service. Ultimately, AC Radio seeks to address Americans in English, a future endeavor that would require additional resources. AC Radio is an independent voice that is not affiliated with any political or religious ideology. It represents the entire Arab American community with all its diverse cultural, political and religious spectrum. AC Radio is funded through commercial ads, sponsorship and private contributions to ensure our independence and assert our neutrality, freedom and objectivity.
