Annual Report


In our 2022-2023 Annual Report, we look back on an extraordinary year and the incredible work of all our staff in these testing times.

Despite the challenges posed by war, international uncertainty, and an economic crisis, we won back the media rights for the Olympic Games (2026-2032), strengthened our news services and helped our Members in their transformation journeys. We support Members with innovative tools, invested in our policy team and built upon the success of the Eurovision Song Contest across platforms. There is much more that you can read about in this report.

None of this would have been possible without the help, encouragement, and guidance of our Members. As the centenary year for public service media draws to a close, there can have been no better demonstration of the huge contribution our Members make both to society and to democracy. We are grateful to everyone that has worked with us to help deliver our mission.
