Radio Televizioni Shqiptar, abbreviated as RTSH, is the government-operated public radio and television broadcaster for Albania. In addition to broadcasting in Albania, RTSH broadcasts its radio programs internationally via medium and short wave radio. Its television services are available via satellite in many countries.
Radio Relevizioni Shqiptar traces its history back to 1938, when Radio Tirana began broadcasting as the first Albanian radio station. In 1960, television broadcasts were introduced, with color broadcasting beginning in 1981. Today, Radio Tirana and RTSH operate as symbols of Albanian culture, in part through its production of documentaries on Albanian national history, culture, and geography.
