Radio HRN is a broadcast radio station in Tegucigalpa, Honduras, providing News and Talk shows. Radio in Honduras began in 1928 when the Tela Railroad Company established Tropical Radio. The first commercial radio station.
In August 1920 a group known as Los Chicos del Coliseo began broadcasting from Teatro Coliseo in Buenos Aires, but it would take many years for radio to arrive in places such as the isthmus of Central America. In Honduras, radio experimentation had begun with local transmissions. American companies (known as bananas) were just a few of the companies providing employment before and after World War II.
It also played recorded music and featured live performances by local talent (including the Sisters Cordova and pianist Guadalupe Ferrari Hartling), marimba bands, singers, poets, and other artists. HRB did not last long, but it inspired several individuals to keep the broadcasting flame alive.
HRN became one of many private enterprises which enjoyed a modest increase in business. During this time, the station replaced La Voz del Comercio for its current slogan, La Voz de Honduras. Ferrari expanded the station, providing an opportunity to a new generation of promising talent; some became household names, solidifying HRN’s position as a powerhouse of Central American radio.
