Cap Radio

Cap Radio was founded in January 2007, by the company registered under the same name. Together with Medi1 Radio, it is the only private national broadcaster nationally based northern city of Tangiers, a city that mainly lives off the maritime and hospitality sectors. Cap Radio targets its audience in the Oriental region [l’Oriental] and the Rif region, as well as the Region of Fès-Meknès. It captures 3,58% of the national audience.

Cap Radio broadcasts a diversity of programs, including news shows, a wide array of talk shows focusing on sports, culture, society, youth and economics among others, religious programs and musical radio shows. The radio is often associated with and sponsoring music festivals and shows across the nation.

Up to 2016, one of Cap Radio’s key investors and shareholders was Samir Abdelmoula, the former mayor of the city of Tangiers and a business man in the maritime sector, who won in 2009 - and lasted one year before resigning in 2010- under the banner of the Modernity and Authenticity banner (Parti Authenticité et Modernité [PAM]) before joining the Islamist party (Parti de la Justice et du Développement [PJD]) in 2011. Historically, the PAM is very strong in the Northern region of Morocco;

In 2016, Abdelmoula sold all his shares to Abdelmajid Laaroussi, who is also a Cap Radio’s major shareholder, as well as its current CEO. The latter is brother to Mohamed Laaroussi, a close friend to former PAM leader Ilyas El Omari and President of the Tanger-Tétouan-Al Hoceima region, and a business man in the hospitality sector.
