Mozaik, a radio station on Moroccan Judaism, will be launched in September. The construction of its studios, based in Casablanca, is being finalized, confirmed the initiator of the project, Jacques Knafo.

A member of Morocco’s Higher Council of Education, Training and Scientific Research, Knafo explaineds that file has been submitted to the High Authority for Audiovisual Communication (HACA) for the granting of a license, and that the statutes are being reviewed.

“The HACA has asked us to clarify the legal status and we must comply with the specifications of private radio stations. We will re-file the file soon,”he said.

Kanfo is also a member of the General Confederation of Moroccan Enterprises (CGEM).

Initially, the radio station will be digital at first, in web radio format, before being deployed on FM waves once the HACA has granted its license.

“It is a radio focused on the socio-cultural and will be broadcast initially in Casablanca, Rabat and Marrakech and then it will be expanded to other cities such as Fez and Tangier, “said Jacques Knafo, who is the main shareholder together with a French financial partner.
