The Instituto Mexicano de la Radio (English: "Mexican Radio Institute") is a Mexican public broadcaster, akin to National Public Radio in the US. It is also known as IMER. Its slogan is "Inteligente Manera de Escuchar Radio" (English: [the] intelligent way to listen [to] radio").

History[edit]

It was founded in 1983 as a companion to the public TV broadcaster Imevisión, since privatized and known as TV Azteca. When Imevisión was privatized, XEIMT-TV (Imevisión's cultural channel) and IMER remained under government control.
