Radio Republik Indonesia (RRI, Radio of the Republic of Indonesia) is the state-owned, public radio network of Indonesia. It has several radio channels broadcasts all over Indonesia and abroad to serve all Indonesian citizens throughout the nation and overseas. RRI also provides information about Indonesia to people around the world. Voice of Indonesia is the division for overseas broadcasting.

RRI was founded on 11 September 1945. Its headquarters are located on Medan Merdeka Barat Street in Central Jakarta. Its national news network Pro 3 broadcasts on 999 kHz AM and 88.8 MHz FM in the Jakarta area and is relayed by satellite and on FM in many Indonesian cities. Three other services are transmitted to the Jakarta area: Pro 1 (regional radio), Pro 2 (music and entertainment radio), and Pro 4 (cultural radio). Regional stations operate in major cities throughout the country, producing local programmes as well as relaying national news and other programmes from RRI Jakarta.


RRI was established on 11 September 1945 by several figures who previously operated several Japanese radio stations in 6 cities. A meeting attended by the station delegates at Adang Kadarusman house on Menteng resulted in the decision to set up Radio Republik Indonesia by choosing Abdul Rahman Saleh as the first general manager.

After the Act No. 32/2002 about Broadcasting is in force, RRI, along with TVRI, set as the public radio network in 2006 and became out of any governmental control.
