This is an empirical analysis of how radio news programmes discussed, reported and reflected on the ‘haircut’ decision in Cyprus in the crucial days of March 2013. The research focuses on four Pancyprian radio news shows which vary according to their style and content. One of the main objectives of this research is to contribute to studying radio in Cyprus from an empirical content analysis perspective, and to investigate the depth of knowledge (or lack of it) by said radio stations on the economic and political climate that prevailed during those turbulent days when the ‘haircut’ decision was taken.
