The RRI building in Central Jakarta

Radio Republik Indonesia (RRI) is the state radio network of Indonesia. The organization is a public broadcasting service. It is a national radio station that 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 September 11, 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.
