TEHRAN – The Islamic Republic of Iran Broadcasting (IRIB) is ready to launch a radio channel dedicated to traveling and tourism, IRIB Deputy Director Hamid Shahabadi said on Wednesday.

“We are ready to launch a radio channel [special] for tourism by the beginning of the [Iranian calendar] month of Tir (June 22) [as a pilot project] which could start broadcasting in the national level after a span of three months,” ISNA quoted Shahabadi as saying.
