Radio Ndef Leng Diourbel (96.4 FM) is a radio station located in Diourbel (Senegal) that broadcast for the local Seereer community in their languages. The station is part of the Radio Ndef Leng brand, itself part of the Seereer "Ndef Leng" movement - an old Seereer movement which gained prominence in 1994 following the founding of Union des associations culturelles Sérères (The Union of Seereer Cultural Associations). With the formation of this Association, several Seereer Associations throughout Senegal came together under one banner to advance the Seereer Agenda. Media commutation was a key issue in promoting the Seereer Agenda so in 1999 the Association decided to apply for broadcaster license and on 19th July 2001, the first Radio Ndef Leng was formed broadcasting for the Seereer community under the name Radio Ndef Leng. That was followed by a host of Radio Ndef Leng stations popping up everywhere in Senegal. Radio Ndef Leng Diourbel (96.4 FM) is one of its latest additions.
