Slovenský rozhlas (Slovak pronunciation: [ˈslɔʋenskiː ˈrɔzɦlas]; "Slovak Radio") or SRo was a state-owned nationwide public-service radio broadcaster in Slovakia. It was headquartered in Bratislava in a building shaped like an inverted pyramid, which currently serves as RTVS radio's headquarters.
SRo began broadcasting from Bratislava, then in Czechoslovakia, twice per week on 3 August 1926 and then daily from 2 October 1926. The broadcaster also managed the Slovak Radio Children's Choir, founded in 1953, and the Slovak Radio Symphony Orchestra (SOSR), founded in 1929 as the Czechoslovak Radio Symphony Orchestra.
As a means to improve the finances of the state-owned public television broadcaster Slovenská televízia (Slovak Television), on 1 January 2011 SRo merged with Slovenská televízia to create Rozhlas a televízia Slovenska (Radio and Television of Slovakia).
SRo was a full member of the European Broadcasting Union between 1993 and 2011.
When merged with Slovenská televízia in 2011, SRo operated nine radio channels, all of which were continued as a part of Rozhlas a televízia Slovenska.
- SRo 1: Rádio Slovensko
- SRo 2: Rádio Regina
- SRo 3: Rádio Devín
- SRo 4: Rádio FM
- SRo 5: Rádio Patria
- SRo 6: Radio Slovakia International
The following were digital-only channels:
- SRo 7: Rádio Klasika (classical music)
- SRo 8: Rádio Litera (drama)
- SRo 9: Rádio Junior (for children up to age 10)
- Radio and Television Slovakia, SRo's successor
