Kalaallit Nunaata Radioa (KNR) (literally Greenland's Radio), officially rendered into English as Greenlandic Broadcasting Corporation, is the national public broadcasting corporation of Greenland, based in the country's capital city, Nuuk.
It is an independent state-owned corporation headed by a five-person board. Its activities are funded from a mixture of sources, mainly direct government funding but also on-air advertising.
In 2012–13 all elements of KNR Radio and TV relocated to a new building in Nuuk.
KNR offers two channels nationwide, KNR1 and KNR2. They are available via digital terrestrial television (DVB-T), and digital cable television (DVB-C). Both channels are also streamed online via YouTube.
In 2006, KNR TV installed a complete digital SD-SDI production and editing facility with the infrastructure to provide for the local production of talkshows, news and remote broadcasts.
Prior to January 2013, KNR1 also featured programming from Danish television networks DR and TV 2 but when several of DR's channels were made free-to-air in Greenland, KNR decided to focus on original Greenlandic programming.
