Sveriges Radio, SR, is a non-commercial, independent public service radio broadcaster. Its mission is to provide high-quality programmes for the Swedish population. SR’s primary aim is to provide enriching programmes for all Swedes, wherever they live and regardless of their age, gender, and cultural background. SR’s comprehensive range of programming should offer something valuable and indispensable for everyone.
Forum for free speech
SR provides programmes which are impartial, accurate and a forum for free speech. Overall programming aims to appeal to a broad audience but also to satisfy niche interests. Each and every programme aims to be characterized by our belief in the equal worth of all human beings and the freedom and dignity of the individual. This is the basis of public service broadcasting.

We cover: popular and classical music; social debate; children’s programming; culture; sport; drama; entertainment; public information; traffic reports and the weather.
