Has ABC radio been shut down?

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

There's a local radio station in Cambodia, called ABC Radio, broadcasting at the end of the FB band (107.x or something), and it's gone.

The question is not about a foreign station broadcasting using internet, MW or LW waves.

Ok, I know the ABC radio station you are talking about. It does citizen talkshows (in Khmer), and people sometimes phone in with social problems that the radio station assists with or it intervenes with local officials on their behalf.

Naked woman walking on Monivong lost her mind over no-good husband

Phnom Penh: At 10pm on 9 March 2018, a woman who was spotted walking naked along Monivong Boulevard near Calmette Hospital ,Phnom Penh, tried to commit suicide in the street.
The woman has been identified as K** S******, a 25 year old junk collector who has two children.

Witnesses said that before the incident, the woman appeared to have a mental problem because she took off all her clothes and was walking naked on the street from French Embassy to Phnom Penh Hotel. Then suddenly she tried to kill herself by hitting her head with a rock, then beating her head on the ground, and trying to run into cars on the road.

When people saw what she was doing, they took her off the road, helped her to put her clothes on, and they contacted the police. They say that she said that she is depressed because her husband had left her for a new girl.
After the incident, the victim gave her husband's phone number to the police to contact him, but he didn't want to pick her up, so the police called ABC radio center to come to her assistance.

You probably could have been more specific at the start. Genuine ABC Radio - if you google it - comes up with a number of Cambodian FM frequencies (none of which actually work) but at least I made an effort.

I would be surprised if ABC Cambodia is off the air, it is close to His Excellency, and as it is popular no doubt must have a lot of advertisers.

Why did Rupert Murdoch close it down?
