SRG is made up of five Enterprise Units and the General Management, and holds
four subsidiaries. With around 6,000 employees / 4,900 full-time equivalents (subsidiaries not included), an annual turnover of approximately 1.6 billion Swiss francs,
17 radio stations and 7 television channels, including Romansh-language programming, as well as complementary websites and teletext services, SRG is the largest
electronic media organization in Switzerland. Its radio stations lead their respective markets in all four
language regions – as do the television channels at
prime time. SRG services successfully hold their own against a variety of competing
foreign broadcasters with greater financial muscle.
SRG is a media enterprise governed by private law and operated in accordance with
the principles of company law. Its remit is based on the Swiss Federal Constitution,
the Federal Radio and Television Act (RTVA), the Radio and Television Ordinance
(RTVO) and its charter, and is one of public service. As a non-profit organization,
SRG derives around 75 percent of its revenues from licence fees and about 25 percent
from commercial activities. It is politically and financially independent.
