DR P3 (full name: Danmarks Radio Program 3; referred to in Denmark simply as P3Danish pronunciation: [ˈpe tʁæ]) is the third of the four national radio networks operated by the Danish public broadcaster DR. It is broadcast on FM radio, DAB, and Internet radio.

P3 specializes in popular music from both established and upcoming artists, with popular entertainment shows and hourly three-minute news bulletins. The network also covers major sporting events. It commenced broadcasting on 1 January 1963 in response to the popularity of the offshore pirate radio station Radio Mercur, which had been outlawed by the Danish parliament in June 1962.[1]
