Merirei Media Group (MMG) started as a quasi-formed idea in 1996, was officially founded in 2014 and became an LLC in 2015.
It’s one of founder C. (Sha) Merirei Ongelungel’s brainchildren and was created as a mean of helping Palauans living abroad feel a little bit closer to home. It was also born from the desire to give Palauans living away from home an additional platform, outside of standard social media.
Since it’s formal founding, MMG has expanded to sporadically sell products and promote other Palauan business owners– and we hope to continue to do so.
About the Founder:
C. (Sha) Merirei Ongelungel made her formal debut on the internet in 1996, throughÂ Ekebil EntertainmentÂ andÂ PalauanPride.com. After about ten years, she moved on to other online endeavors– but continued to blog sporadically about various topics pertaining to the greater Palauan community.
She spent 2011-2014 in the Republic of Palau, dabbling in various forms of media– but ultimately devoting most of her energy to running Salvador Tellames’Â Palau Wave Radio and also writing theÂ Native ExPat column inÂ Tia Belau Newspaper.
Upon her return to the United States, she decided to move forward with launching an online radio station as a means of alleviating homesickness for Palauans living abroad.
