Information for everyone
Information is the source of democracy and freedom of opinion. Carefully researched information broadcasts shed light on socio-political affairs from various perspectives. They provide background context, offer guidance and stimulate discussion. Information is a public service.
Over 50% of media fees income
are invested in public information programming.
Information for the whole of Switzerland
SRG’s information and news programmes report on current affairs in Switzerland and all over the world. They offer an independent yet unmistakably Swiss view of political, economic and social events.
Information and reports must be carefully researched and communicated in a credible way to enable people to form their own opinions freely. Our independent reporting plays an important role in this – and thus enhances the political culture in Switzerland.
