The Kapisanan ng mga Brodkaster ng Pilipinas (English name: Association of Broadcasters of the Philippines, abbreviated KBP) is a broadcast media organization in the Philippines which provides its members broadcasting standards. The KBP was organized on April 27, 1973 in order to promote professional and ethical standards in Philippine broadcasting both in radio and television (TV). The KBP provides broadcast media regulations and guidelines for news, public affairs and commentaries, political broadcasts, children’s shows, religious programming, and including advertising to its members. The members of the KBP are composed of the owners and operators of radio and television stations including the radio and television stations themselves.
