KBC English service is a pioneer tiol radio station in Kenya. It was started in 1928 as a channel for giving colonial settlers updates from
their country. In 1931, it was transformed from a social club to a government mouthpiece aimed at keeping the empire together. In 1961, the colonial government was not in a position to maintain English and other African broadcasting services it had introduced. It therefore declared these broadcasting services into a self-sustaining Parastatal called Kenya Broadcasting Corporation.
