IAWRT Tanzania Chapter was not heard in the 1990s although there were members who were involved in the organisation. The person who inspired us all to join the organisation at that time was Betty Mkwasa, co broadcaster with the then Radio Tanzania Dar es Salaam. This was after her return from one of Iawrt meetings abroad. The first members to join Iawrt was Betty Mkwasa, Edda Sanga, Penzi Nyamungumi and Rose Haji Mwalimu. All aforementioned members are broadcasters with former Radio Tanzania Dar es Salaam now Tanzania Broadcasting Corporation (TBC).
Years went by and it was until 2009 when Iawrt was officially installed as a chapter during the Cambodia Bi-annual Conference.
Iawrt Tanzania Chapter was officially registered in 2011 as a local NGO under NGO Compliance Act 2002. Membership has grown from seven to 16 as of September 2015.
