History

It was formerly called Moroccan Radio and Television (RTM) from 1956 and Radiodiffusion-Télévision Marocaine (RTM) from 1961. Radio-Maroc was one of the founding members of the European Broadcasting Union in 1950 and continued as an active member until 1 January 1961 when RTM changed its affiliation to associate membership. In 1969 RTM was readmitted as an active member.

In 2009, the SNRT became a shareholder in Euronews, initially acquiring 0.33% then later expanding its share to 6% in 2011.[1][2]

In 2021, Othman El Ferdaous, the Minister of Culture, announced that SNRT would be reorganized into a public holding group by 2024, during which it would acquire the part-state-owned 2M and private Medi 1 Radio and Medi 1 TV channels.[3] In addition, its Aflam TV channel would be replaced with an "SVOD" video-on-demand platform.[4]
