Promoting the interests of
public service media
112 Member organizations in 56 countries from Europe and beyond come together to make up the
European Broadcasting Union, the world's leading alliance of public service media.
The European Broadcasting Union (EBU) is the world’s leading alliance of public service media (PSM). We have 112 member organizations in 56 countries and have an additional 30 Associates in Asia, Africa, Australasia and the Americas. Our Members operate nearly 2,000 television, radio and online channels and services, and offer a wealth of content across other platforms.
Together they reach an audience of more than one billion people around the world, broadcasting in 153 languages. We operate Eurovision and Euroradio services.
At the EBU, we strive to secure a sustainable future for public service media. We provide our Members with world-class content from news to sports and music, and build on our founding ethos of solidarity and co-operation to create a centre for learning and sharing.

In our 2021-2022 Annual Report, we look back on a year that saw everyone come together under difficult circumstances. We all hoped that 2022 would offer a brighter dawn as Europe emerged from the grip of the coronavirus pandemic and crippling lockdowns. Instead, we now find ourselves in the midst of a terrible war at the very heart of our continent.
Public service media has once again played a critical role in this crisis. Our Members have come together to safeguard our news broadcasts and their work on the ground in Ukraine has ensured vital, independent news and information reaches citizens everywhere.
For the EBU, it’s been an incredible collective effort. Events over the last couple of years have shown us the value of having an agile strategy so our teams have the flexibility to decide for themselves ‘how’ they are going to achieve the best results for all our Members – whatever the circumstances. This year, our primary focus is on transformation and we’ve reshaped all our services to help guide you through strategic, digital and operational transformation.
