Before 1928, there was a pro-radio movement, led by professor Dragomir Hurmuzescu, who, in March 1925, funded "The Friends of Radio Association".

The first experimental transmission was broadcast in summer 1925, during "Bucharest's month". Periodic broadcasts were made during 1926 and 1927 by "The Friends of Radio Association" and the University Electrotechnical Institute. In 1927 a short wave emitter was installed and were made the first transatlantic experimental broadcasts. "The gramophone recording broadcast through electromagnetic cartridge has been clearly heard in Boston, United States". In March 1928 the Romanian Radio Broadcasting Company was legally founded.

The first radio transmission was broadcast on November 1, 1928, 5:00 PM. The first official radio show was inaugurated by the Romanian physicist and professor Dragomir Hurmuzescu, who became the president of the Administration Council of The Radiotelephonic Broadcasting Company.

On December 18, 1928, the first comic radio show was broadcast.

In 1929, the following shows are broadcast:

  • the first show for children: Children's Hour (Ora copiilor, 12 January);
  • the first theater broadcast: the poem "One Autumn" (O toamnă) by Alfred Moşoiu (23 January);
  • the first live broadcast from the Opera: Aida by Giuseppe Verdi (14 April);
  • the first live broadcast from the Romanian Atheneum (28 October).


The number of broadcasting hours increases consistently, reaching 3,517 hours in 1934.



The political events after the end of World War II affected the institution.

  • 11 June 1948 - the RRBC was fully state controlled; composer Matei Socor is named director-general
  • in 1952 the new headquarters of RRBC was inaugurated
  • After 1954 the local stations appear:
    • Cluj - 15 March 1954
    • Craiova - 6 June 1954
    • Timişoara - 1955
    • Târgu Mureş - 1958
    • Radio Vacanţa - 1967 (seaside radio station)
  • 12 March 1973 - the 3rd channel (Programul III)[4]
  • 1985 - the local stations stop broadcasting (by a Presidential Decree)
