Norsk Rikskringkasting

Redirected from NRK

NRK (Norsk Rikskringkasting) is the Norwegian state-owned radio and television public broadcasting company. Founded in 1933 based on a model similar to the BBC, and located in Oslo, it was a replacement for privately operated radio stations in the larger cities. NRK initially set out to get coverage over the entire country, and had a monopoly on broadcasting in Norway until the monoply was gradually dissolved from 1975 onwards. NRK was the last of the major European public broadcasters to introduce a second radio channel, as late as in 1982.
