The Diursian Broadcasting Corporation (DBC) is the public broadcaster of Diursia.

It is funded by a mixture of government budget allocations and advertising.

History

It was originally founded as a joint venture between the BBC and the ERTU. After both Sudan and Diursia gained independence, it was renamed the DBC. By 1984, the Diursian government gained full ownership of the DBC. The BBC owned a stake again from 1997 to 2007. After this, the license fee was abolished due to growing income inequality.
