Radio Oberösterreich is the regional radio for Upper Austria operated by ORF as part of the Österreich 2 ( Österreich-Regional ) station.


During the day, Radio Oberösterreich offers a fully formatted program with music, moderation, news, sports, culture and weather / traffic services tailored to the audience in Upper Austria. The target group are Upper Austrians over 35 years of age. The music selection is mainly based on popular Popoldies. German-language titles are also played, mostly Schlager or Neue Deutsche Welle, with the proportion of Austrian music titles (" Austropop ") being relatively high. Occasionally there are so-called "music weekends" on weekends, when music is played almost exclusively by a certain artist, a certain genre or a certain musical time. Among other things, the following "music weekends" have already taken place: The " Udo Jürgens weekend", the " Elvis Presley weekend", the "musical Hådern weekend", the "Austropop weekend", "Girls, Girls, Girls - Von Angie to Suzie Q. "," Disco Fever - The Music Weekend ", Music Weekend:" Happy Birthday Elton John "and" Bella Italia! The Music Weekend ". The program can also be received via live stream on the Internet worldwide and Astra Digital throughout Europe. During the week after 6:30 p.m. and on the weekend after 7:00 p.m. and on Sunday mornings, Radio Oberösterreich deviates from the oldie-based format and broadcasts traditional folk music (" folk culture "), sports, culture and talk magazines.

With the introduction of the private regional radio in 1998, Radio Upper Austria got new competition. Stations such as the commercially oriented " Life Radio ", "Krone Hit", " Radio Arabella " and the free culture broadcaster Radio FRO (Radio Free Upper Austria) have found audiences in recent years. With 420,000 listeners from the age of ten (entire broadcasting area of ​​Radio Oberösterreich, Monday to Friday, preliminary projection), Radio Oberösterreich is the regional market leader in the 10+ target group (Radiotest; 2nd half of 2007).


Since January 2012, Radio Upper Austria has been headed by regional director Kurt Rammerstorfer as a division of the ORF regional studio Upper Austria (based in Linz). Johannes Jetschgo is the head of information and responsible for the news broadcasts. Michael Trnka acts as program manager, as the long-time program manager and head of the sports department, Reinhard Waldenberger, retired on December 31, 2017. Andrea Novak is responsible for regional marketing and Günther Hartl for the folk culture department.

Peace light

The now internationally known and valued idea for the peace light from Bethlehem has its origin in the Upper Austria regional studio. Radio Upper Austria accompanies the newly selected Friedenslichtkind from Upper Austria every year.


In addition to popular music and information broadcasts, Radio Upper Austria is also open to an audience interested in culture. Alice Ertlbauer-Cammerer's "Konzertpodium" or, in earlier years, the "Open Radio", in which Bernhard Kravanja-Raingruber's jazz and world music series "Tin Pan Alley" ran, are and were a living example of this.
