ⓘ Yugoslav Radio Television

Yugoslav Radio Television was the national public broadcasting system in the SFR Yugoslavia. It consisted of eight subnational radio and television broadcast centers with each one headquartered in one of the six constituent republics and two autonomous provinces of Yugoslavia.

Each television center created its own programming independently, and some of them operated several channels. The system dissolved during the breakup of Yugoslavia in the early 1990s when most republics became independent countries. As a result, the once subnational broadcasting centers became public broadcasters of the newly independent states, with altered names:

JRT was one of the founding members of the European Broadcasting Union and the SFR Yugoslavia was the only socialist country among its founding members.

Among other activities, it organized the Yugoslavian qualifier for the Eurovision Song Contest and broadcast both of events for the Yugoslav audience. JRTs news program, TV Dnevnik, broadcasts on all stations today in six seven if Kosovo is recognized by someone as independent countries.
