Bulgarian National Radio (Bulgarian: Българско национално радио, Balgarsko natsionalno radio; abbreviated БНР, BNR) is the national radio network of Bulgaria. It was founded on 30 March 1930 as Rodno radio ("Native radio") by a group of intellectuals. Broadcasting began in June the same year. On 1 January 1993 BNR was admitted to full active membership of the European Broadcasting Union.

BNR has two domestic Bulgarian-language radio channels, Horizont and Hristo Botev, as well as a world service called Radio Bulgaria which broadcasts in 11 languages: Bulgarian, Russian, English, German, French, Spanish, Serbian, Greek, Albanian, Turkish and Arabic). All stations are also available online. There are seven more local radio stations in the BNR structure: Radio Plovdiv [1], Radio Varna[2], Radio Shumen [3], Radio Stara Zagora [4], Radio Blagoevgrad [5], Radio Sofia [6] and Radio Vidin.

On 26 May 2008 RPTS of Kostinbrod in Bulgaria started the country's first regular broadcasts in digital format, using Digital Radio Mondiale (DRM).
