ICRT ‘serves’ the community

International Community Radio Taipei (ICRT) is operated by the Taipei International Community Cultural Foundation (TICCF). The ICRT Web site states, “Our primary mandate is to serve the expatriate community in Taiwan.” Last Sunday and Monday from 9pm to 6am, during the height of Super Typhoon Jangmi, ICRT served the expatriate community by repeating the same typhoon report nine times. ICRT’s funding is no doubt reliant on fulfilling its primary mandate. Unfortunately, for Taiwan’s expatriate community that does not appear to extend after 9pm.
