Media of Morocco includes newspapers, radio, television, and the Internet.
The first newspaper to appear in Morocco was El Eco de Tetuán founded in 1860 in Spanish. Such publications were not generally available in Moroccan cities until 1908. The government of Morocco owns many key media outlets, including Moroccan radio and television, and the Moroccan press agency, Maghreb Arab Press.
Moroccans have access to approximately 2,000 domestic and foreign publications. Many of the major dailies and weeklies can now be accessed on their own Web sites. Morocco has 27 AM radio stations, 25 FM radio stations, 6 shortwave stations, and 11 television stations including the channels of the public SNRT, the mixed-ownership (half public-half private) 2M TV and the privately owned Medi 1 TV.
