radiotelevizija slovenija (english: radio-television of slovenia) – usually abbreviated to rtv slovenija (or simply rtv within slovenia) – is slovenia's national public broadcasting organization. based in the country's capital, ljubljana, it has regional broadcasting centres in koper and maribor and correspondents around slovenia, europe and the world. rtv slovenija's national radio services operate under the name radio slovenija, while the television division carries the name televizija slovenija or tv slovenija. the names are sometimes anglicized as radio slovenia and tv slovenia, respectively. there are three national and four regional radio services, which can all be heard online as well. rtv slovenija also finances the rtv slovenia symphony orchestra and the rtv slovenia big band.
the legal foundation for the institution is the
radiotelevizija slovenija act (slovene: zakon o radioteleviziji slovenija). it is the only public nonprofit broadcasting organization in slovenia to operate both radio and television stations. the law also requires it to air radio and television services for the country's two indigenous linguistic minorities, which it does in collaboration with the regional broadcasting centres in maribor (for the hungarian-speaking minority) and in koper (for the italian-speaking minority). approximately 73% of rtv slovenija's funding comes from television licence fees.
