The list of radio stations in North Korea lists all the national and regional radio stations in North Korea.

Radio is the most commonly used broadcast media in North Korea. All stations are subject to the strict control of the government and carry no advertising. Some of the transmitters carry regional programmes in the afternoons, but usually relay the central programme from Pyongyang.

There are four North Korean radio networks:

  • Korean Central Broadcasting Station: the main domestic full service radio network, primarily broadcast on mediumwave with some FM and shortwave transmitters
  • Pyongyang FM Broadcasting Station: FM-only, domestic music network
  • Pyongyang Broadcasting Station: an "all-Korea" service primarily aimed at South Koreans and ethnic Koreans in China, broadcast on mediumwave and widely available on FM and shortwave
  • Voice of Korea, a multi-lingual shortwave broadcaster aimed at audiences worldwide, also available on mediumwave in the Pyongyang area
