The NBC (National Broadcasting Corporation) is Papua New Guinea's state owned broadcaster. Its head office is in Boroko, Port Moresby, and has approximately 20 locations around the country.

The NBC was set up by the Australian Broadcasting Corporation before independence in 1973. On 1 December 1973 the NBC (the National Broadcasting Commission as it was known at the time) was handed over to the Papua New Guinea government.

Two national radio stations - NBC Radio (90.7 FM) and The Tribe (92.3FM) - and the television station known as NBC TV (formerly Kundu 2), are operated from the head office in Port Moresby.
