The European Broadcasting Union (EBU) is the world’s leading alliance of public service media (PSM). We believe strong PSM is at the heart of democratic societies and are committed to championing and upholding its unique value at both a national and international level. We represent 116 member organizations in 56 countries in Europe, North Africa and the Middle East and also have 33 associate PSM organizations in the Americas, Asia, Africa and Australasia.

Our Members operate almost 2,000 television, radio and online channels and services and offer a wealth of content across other platforms. Together, our Members reach audiences of more than one billion people around the world, broadcasting in more than 160 languages.

We campaign for a sustainable future for public service media, 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.

Our business arm, Eurovision Media Services, enables media organizations and sport federations to maximise their content value by producing and delivering relevant sport, news and culture/entertainment content to the right audiences at the right time.

We employ 430 staff (permanent and temporary positions) of over 40 nationalities at our headquarters in Geneva and our worldwide branches and subsidiaries (Beijing, Brussels, Moscow, New York, Rome, Singapore and Washington DC).
