Over the past decade in Hong Kong, net radio stations have served as alternative media safeguarding freedom of speech. Using the historical case of one pioneering alternative net radio station, the People's Radio Hong Kong (20042007), this article traces the historical emergence and development of alternative net radio in this democratizing city.
The historical legacy of this exemplary station will also be discussed through the lens of recent developments. This case study aims to contribute to net radio research by exploring its political potential in terms of challenging the political-economic status quo.
