OSC Reports on Iran’s State-Run Television

01.06.10 | 1 min read | Text by Steven Aftergood

Iran’s state-run television organization known as the IRIB is profiled in a new report (pdf) from the DNI Open Source Center.

The rather massive IRIB employs an estimated 46,000 persons, according to the OSC report, and has a reported budget of $900 million.  It offers a vast network of internal and external channels, which collectively seek to “strengthen the country’s cultural solidarity,” to promote “the majesty and supremacy of Islam,” and to support “the fulfillment of the Supreme Leader’s point of view.”

The unclassified OSC report has not been approved for public release, but a copy was obtained by Secrecy News.  See “Structure of Iran’s State-Run TV IRIB,” Open Source Center, December 16, 2009.
