The Compañía de Radio e Televisión de Galicia (CRTVG) was founded in 1985 and is located in Santiago, the capital of Galicia. The company's first mission is to improve and standardize the use of our official language, Galician, and promote our culture through Televisión de Galicia (TVG) and Radio Galega (RG). Their budgets are mainly supported by the autonomous Government of Galicia, as well as by advertising.
TVG broadcasts 24 hours a day on two digital terrestrial channels and two satellite channels to Europe and America. The network reaches more than 4 million people in northwest Spain (covering Galicia and surrounding areas) and northern Portugal. The program schedule includes news, concerts, cultural programs, content for children, contests, games, series, films, debates and sports. Of these areas, over 60% of production is done with own resources.
The technical means consists of 4 mobile units, 10 video post-production rooms, and 4 studios, while the current production network itself has the best technical coverage of the region.
The 3 channels in Radio Galega offer information, music and special programming for our listeners to be the first to know. The radio emission encourages interaction with the public through the most innovative information technologies. Radio Galega plays a key role in promoting the music of Galicia and this involves the availability of our studios in order to produce albums and live music concerts.
The company as a whole has about a thousand employees in its central production center, with 4 offices in the main cities of Galicia and one in Madrid.
CRTVG is one of the founding members of FORTA, the federation of radio and regional television in Spain, consisting of 13 stations.
