The station started its journey on December 31, 2011 as a united voice of these deprived
rural people. It is situated at Sutrapur in Bogra’s Sherpur Road.Private development organization Landless Distressed Rehabilitation Organization (LDRO) received permission from the Information Ministry in 2010 to run the station.

Moreover, listeners regularly send text messages, giving their feedback, which is a sign that people listen to the radio. The authority informed that they emphasize listeners’ opinion in producing programs for Radio Mukti.
However, broadcasting frequency is currently the toughest challenge of Rdio Mukti because it is difficult to listen to the radio from many of the surrounding areas. In addition financial crisis is also persistent as well as electricity problem. Moreover it is in urgent need of some necessary equipment. The authority is further planning to train its staffs on news presentation, editing and recording.
