With its 30 members representing the four Swiss cultural regions and the Principality of Liechtenstein, the Verband Schweizer Privatradios / Association Suisse des Radios Privees is the leading association of private radios in Switzerland.
VSP/ASRP’s main objective is to defend the interests of its members and of private commercial radios in general. In particular, representing them in negotiations and lobbying to the legislative and executive powers, and any institutions or organisations whose activities and objectives affect ours.
The VSP/ASRP plays an active part in the development of public opinion as to media politics, encourages the exchange of know-how and products amongst its members, supports training activities, defends the interests of private radios against the claims of publicly funded broadcasters and participates in the current revision of Swiss radio, TV and copyright legislation.
VSP/ASRP membership is open to all private commercial broadcasters with a federal concession allowing them to broadcast a part or full time radio programme in Switzerland. The VSP/ASRP is politically, confessional, and economically independent and neutral.
VSP joined AER in 2001.
