Radio Programas del Peru (RPP) is a radio and television broadcasting company in Peru within the Grupo RPP formed in Lima in 1963 by Manuel Delgado Parker and Emilio Checa. Originally an entertainment station focusing on radio dramas, it switched to news radio format in 1978. In 1997, the network changed its identification symbol to RPP, the initials of its name. RPP has the largest radio coverage in Peru, covering 97 percent of the country.[1] RPP can be heard in real time on the Internet and can be seen on cable television through Movistar TV on the RPP News channel, launched on January 31, 2011.[2]

Internet station

The RPP website was launched in late 1996 by the initiative of Frida Delgado, who created the Internet site. In 2000, RPP implemented a technical and journalistic team of Miro Quesada and Francisco Elias Barrientos, whose informative and commercial approach would make it one of the most viewed sites of Peru with their innovative dissemination of news on the Internet. Currently these functions are vested in John Taylor and Mark Paredes.
