NRK P2 is one of three nationwide digital radio channels produced by the Norwegian Broadcasting Corporation (NRK). Its current format – focusing on news and current affairs, debate, analysis, culture, science, society [1] – is the result of the NRK radio channel reform initiated in 1993 by radio director Tor Fuglevik. The original P2, established as NRK's second radio channel in 1984, had carried lighter programming.

In 1999 the channel's employees were collectively awarded the Fritt Ord Award for their championship of freedom of speech.[2]

All of NRK's radio stations are gradually being digitized during 2017 and will eventually be transmitted via DAB+ and internet only.
