Radio Ñanduti Celebrates 55 Years on Paraguay’s Airwaves

ASUNCION – “Credibility” is the foundation on which Radio Ñanduti has established its reputation over the last 55 years on Paraguay’s airwaves, its emblematic figure, journalist Humberto Rubin, told EFE.

Rubin, 82, said that the station’s interaction with the audience and its commitment to the truth are the two things that have provided its credibility, the secret to its more than half a century in Paraguayan homes.

“I believe, perhaps with a lot of pride, that it’s due to credibility. Although it may be tough, you have to give the truth to the public. The truth is made of stone, as my mother always used to say,” the journalist remarked.

However, the exercise of confronting the truth on a day to day basis at Radio Ñanduti became a challenge during the dictatorship of Alfredo Stroessner, who governed Paraguay with an iron fist from 1954-1989.

In fact, the station was shut down three times, according to Rubin, for “denouncing all the barbarisms that the regime was doing.”

“It has its advantages and its inconveniences,” said Rubin upon being asked about the station’s character as a “family dynasty.”

“Everything for Freedom” is Radio Ñanduti’s slogan, a saying followed in practice through the past five-and-a-half decades of the station’s operations, recognized a year ago by the Paraguayan Senate, which at the time paid tribute to Rubin on the station’s 54th anniversary.

Congratulations for Rubin and his entire team on its 55th anniversary have been coming in all week and especially from listeners.

The communicator once again received good wishes on Wednesday morning during his regular early morning show “Franja Roja,” a segment in which listeners can express their opinions without any restrictions.

Rubin is also one of Paraguay’s main environmental activists via his “Paraguay breathes – deeply” effort, an initiative that has involved thousands of citizens in the fight against deforestation in the landlocked South American country.
