What We Do

Local programs are influenced by the unique mix of politics, culture, technology and arts in Berlin. We organize special events relevant to listeners on topics of politics, business, arts, literature, music, culture and technology. We also build a network of partners and listeners to participate in station activities, such as discussion evenings, seminars and cooperative projects.


Support comes from corporate sponsors, foundations and individual donors.
