Euranet, (European Radio Network) is a consortium of international, national, regional and local European broadcasters.

History[edit]

On the initiative of Deutsche Welle (DW) and Radio France Internationale (RFI), 16 international, national, regional and local European broadcasters from 13 EU countries created a pan-European media consortium on 25 July 2007. This comprises both public and private broadcasters.

The official presentation of the European media consortium Euranet by Margot Wallström, Vice-President of the European Commission, took place on 26 February 2008 in Brussels. In the first year, Euranet programmes were broadcast in the five main languages – German, English, French, Polish and Spanish, as well as five further languages – Bulgarian, Greek, Portuguese, Romanian and Hungarian. As of July 2012, Euranet brings together 26 professional radio stations, supplemented by 10 campus radios.
