    During ISIS's rule in Mosul, radio stations were banned and replaced with broadcasts of militant propaganda. Today, young Iraqis are filling the city's airwaves.

    One budding presenter is Nour Tai, who at 16 years old faces the microphone with a confident tone and a professional style, said Agence France Presse.

    She hosts a weekly program on One FM, a Mosul station launched in February that broadcasts a mix of music, entertainment and current affairs debates.

    Her career began a year ago thanks to a talent show organized by Al-Ghad, a station in the Kurdish city of Erbil which hosted many of those displaced from Iraq's second city.

    She told AFP at the time that she was passionate about radio because "it touches everyone".

    "I want to be part of it," she said.

    She now sits in the One FM studio, accompanied by her father, as a degenerative illness left her blind three years ago.
