Kalaallit Nunaata Radio (Radio Greenland) is an independent public body administered by the Greenlandic Government. It is headed by a 7-man board, with its day-to-day running in the hands of a management committee. KNR - Radio and TV - broadcasts both radio and television programmes every day, which can be received throughout Greenland.

KNR, which is the most important media enterprise in Greenland, is financed by contributions from the national treasury, by advertising, sponsorship, etc. Its range of programmes include social affairs, youth programmes, cultural material, entertainment, music and news, both domestic and from all over the world.
In recent years, KNR has embarked on modernization and acquired its own TV building. KNR TV broadcasts about 300 hours of Greenlandic, and about 2,000 hours of Danish programmes per year. KNR Radio broadcasts about 5,400 hours of material each year, divided into 2,500 hours in Greenlandic, 900 in Danish and 2,200 hours of music.
KNR's news departments in Nuuk, North Greenland, South Greenland and Copenhagen deliver news to the whole of Greenland in both Greenlandic and Danish. Domestic production in both the cultural and youth departments of Radio and TV mainly produce material in Greenlandic. Domestic production on both radio and TV are financed partly by TV advertise-ment earnings.
KNR TV also transmits TV news from Danmarks Radio every day of the year, while broadcasts from Danmarks Radio can be heard on another channel in Greenland.
About 120 people are employed at KNR.
