Radio Vanessa FM was established on June 5, 1994, the first editor-in-chief of the radio was its co-founder, Arkadiusz Ekiert. From the beginning of its existence, it was a local station with exclusively regional coverage. Only after the introduction of internet transmission did the radio gain practically worldwide coverage. However, this did not change the regional character of the station. The first headquarters of Radio Vanessa FM was located on the top floor of the building of Zakłady Przemysłu Cukierniczego Mieszko S.A. A few years later, the move to Bukowa street in the center of Raciborz took place, and since 2004 the new headquarters is located at Batorego street 5. Radio Vanessa FM played a significant role during the flood of the millennium in 1997. For a long time it was the only source of news for residents. Cooperating with the flood control staff, he constantly provided residents with information about flooded areas, missing persons and evacuation actions, reporting events on an ongoing basis. The information was provided by representatives of the public health and gas company, as well as psychologists. For obvious reasons, the implementation of the schedule and the emission of advertisements were suspended. After the departure of the flood wave, the radio reported for a long time on removing the effects of the flood. For his activity in that period, he was awarded the NIPTEL award in 1997. The radio again played an important informative role during the spring 2010 flood, noting a record number of visits to its website.
