The Dominica Broadcasting Corporation (D.B.S Radio), is the national broadcasting service of the
Commonwealth of Dominica.
The Dominica Broadcasting Corporation evolved from the Windward Islands Broadcasting Service
(W.I.B.S), which provided radio service to the four Windward Islands, Dominica, Grenada, St. Lucia and
St. Vincent from 1955.
WIBS was a short-wave radio network that linked the Grenadian short-wave transmitter to the short-
wave transmitters on the three other islands – Dominica, St. Lucia and St. Vincent.
W.I.B.S Dominica’s studio was located behind the Public Library on Victoria Street, Roseau, which at the
time was located adjacent to the current location of DBS Radio.
The premiers of these four countries worked under the administrative leadership of the West Indies
Broadcasting Council until 1971.
W.I.B.S was disbanded in the early 1970s as member states became independent or Associated States.
Emerging from W.I.B.S’ disbandment were national media stations.
