European Broadcasting Union

The European Broadcasting Union (EBU), which is unrelated to the European Union, was formed February 12, 1950 by 23 broadcasting organizations from Europe and the Mediterranean rim at a conference in the coastal resort of Torquay in Devon, England. In 1993 the broadcasters from the Central and Eastern Europe, grouped earlier in the International Radio and Television Organisation (OIRT), have joined EBU.

The EBU now has active full members from forty-eight countries, associate members from thirty more countries, and four other approved participants. Members are radio and television companies, most of which are government-owned public service broadcasters or privately owned stations with public missions. Full active Members are based in countries from Algeria to the Vatican State, including almost all European countries. Associate members are not limited to those from European countries and the Mediterranean but include broadcasters from Canada, Japan, Mexico, Brazil, India and Hong Kong, as well as many others. Associate Members from the United States include ABC, CBS, NBC, the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, and AOL Time Warner.
