African Union of Broadcasting (AUB, French: Union Africaine de Radiodiffusion (UAR)) is a professional body composed of the national radio and television organizations of African states.[1] The organization is committed to the development of all aspects of broadcasting in Africa including the exchange of indigenous programming.[1] It is headquartered in Dakar, Senegal.[1]

History[edit]

AUB was founded in 1962[1] as the Union of African National Television and Radio Organizations (French: Union des Radiodiffusions et Televisions Nationales d'Afrique, URTNA), an autonomous specialized agency working under the auspices of the OAU. The organization was renamed to AUB at the 2006 URTNA General Assembly held in Abuja, Nigeria.[1]
