RMC began broadcasting on July 1, 1943. The German troops wanted a propaganda radio in the south of France . It was operated by the radio company SOFIRA . After the occupation, the French Republic became 83.33% and the Principality of Monaco 16.67% owners. From 1945 onwards, the broadcast was from Fontbonne on the northern slope of the Agel mountain , and from 1965 from the Col de la Madone north of Fontbonne. In 1974 the construction work for a large transmitter in Roumoules was finished; in the same year RMC began distributing its program from there. In 1998 the French Republic sold its stake to Groupe Fabre . Two years later, Groupe Fabre sold its stake in NextRadioTV . In 2001 RMC changed its name to RMC Info . One began to rely more on information programs and talk shows. The renaming was reversed a year later. RMC had acquired several sports rights and has been broadcasting the World Cup and Formula 1 ever since .
