Dak Lak Radio and Television Station was set up in early time when the southern Vietnam was liberated. It was developed from Buon Ma Thuot Radio station. Despite facing many difficulties, the station’s cadres and staffs always tried to take advantages of equipment and machines to produce programmes serving local people, contributing to encouraging labour emulation campaigns.
To meet increasing demand of viewers and listeners, after on-year pilot broadcasting, Dak Lak Radio Station was official turned into the Dak Lak Radio and Television Station in 1984.

With a goal to make “Practical – Useful- Interesting” programmes, the station raises total time for radio programes to 11 hours/day and 18 hours/day for television programmes with 38 columns, news, science and education programmes and game shows. Weekly programmes attracted viewers and audiences as it has become an important information channel and food of the mind for local people.
