LBC or Lettuce Broadcasting Corporation (Spanish: Radiodifusión Pública de Lettuce, Lettucian: Rədiodifuz Publik d'Lettuche) is the Lettucian government-owned radio and television public broadcasting company, and one of the largest media organizations in the country. It's one of the founding broadcasting organizations of the Outernatian Broadcasting Union.


Founded under the name "Radio Lettuce" in 1970, it was for many years the first and only radio station in the country due to a government ban to allow commercial stations. During the 80's, the radio supply expanded to 7 networks: 3 for the major languages ​​of the country, and 4 regional channels.

In 1983 the "Television Corporation of Lettuce," was the only network business environment of the country at the time to be created after a controversial special permit issued by the military junta that ruled the country. After 6 years of economic problems, the government bought the corporation, integrating Radio Lettuce to form the LBC as it is known today.

While the corporation maintains its statutes in the role of public and educational service, which must accommodate all communities residing in the country, this practice was not effective due to the income that the corporation receives in respect of advertising space, which reach 46% of the total budget of the corporation.



LBC operates seven television channels in Lettuce of which LBC 1 and LBC Arabic are the flagship television channels. In addition to these two flagship channels, the LBC operates several digital only stations: LBC 2, LBC 3, LBC k!ds, LBC 24 and one sattelite channel, LBCsat. Digital television is now in widespread use in Lettuce, with analogue transmission completely phased out by December 2013.
