NRK P2 is one of three nationwide analogue radio channels operated by the Norwegian Broadcasting Corporation (NRK). It is the result of the NRK radio channel reform initiated in 1993 by radio director Tor Fuglevik.

The original NRK P2 was established as NRK's second radio channel in 1984, and had a lighter programming. The new NRK P2 after the reform in 1993 focuses on culture and current affairs news, debate, analysis, science, society.[1]

In 1999 its employees were collectively awarded the Fritt Ord Award.[2]
