RAI Regional
website: www.tgr.rai.it

RAI regional offering is mainly made up by three television news programmes and two radio news bulletins; in addition, special programmes and news are produced in French, German, Ladin and Slovenian for the linguistic minorities in specific regions. On 20 October 2008, the TGR (Testata giornalistica regionale) started producing Buongiorno Regione in the four RAI production centres (Rome, Turin, Milan, Naples). The programme, which is broadcast live on RaiTre from Monday to Friday, from 7.30 to 8.00 am, extends the space dedicated to local information to the early morning, including two editions of the news, traffic and weather information, a presentation of the articles featured in the regional newspapers and a glance over the main appointments on the agenda. Viewers are given an opportunity to voice their opinions in «Ditelo al TGR», sending in videos, photos or e-mails to report the issues they want to air during the programme. The half-hour magazine also includes live reports dedicated to the main events occurring at local level.

The production for the national programmes goes on air during the weekend on RaiTre: financial, social, environmental and cultural issues are analysed by I nostri soldi, Bellitalia, Ambiente Italia and Italia agricoltura;  information on Europe, science and technology issues by Buongiorno Europa, RegionEuropa, Leonardo and Neapolis; relations with the neighbouring regions are the subject of Levante, Estovest and Mediterraneo; Montagne, broadcast by RaiDue, is the programme on life at high altitudes produced by TGR.

Over 700 journalists work as part of an organization with a total of 868 staff members, in a network made up of 23 regional offices throughout Italy; in addition, some decentralised offices, correspondents and ‘resident editors’.

Thanks to the launch of Buongiorno Regione (from 19 January 2009 in all regional departments), the TGR production figures have risen significantly:
• 8,000 hours of regional news broadcasts, including 550 hours dedicated to linguistic minorities;
• some 200 hours of nationwide broadcasting;
• 6,000 hours of regional radio broadcasts, including no less than 2,000 hours dedicated to linguistic
minorities;
• more than 30,000 contributions, among services and links, to national TV and radio news broadcasts and to other national network programming.
