CRo-Czech_Radio-H-BLACK

The history of Czech Radio began in 1923 in the former Czechoslovakia in a canvas tent in Prague - Kbely. Since then, broadcasting has undergone dramatic developments, from live broadcasting to a digital broadcast, from a private company to an independent public service that is part of the European Broadcasting Union. History was built in front of the historic building of Czech Radio on Vinohradská Street 12, during the so-called Prague Uprising in 1945 or during the occupation of Czechoslovakia by the Warsaw Pact troops in 1968.

Currently, Czech Radio broadcasts on the waves four nationwide and four special stations and operates a regional broadcasting network in all regions of the Czech Republic. Broadcasting abroad in six world languages is an integral part. But the content does not only spread over radio waves. Web sites and mobile applications also make it easy to listen to news from home and abroad, journalism, music and more.

Guest Speaker: Brit Jensen
