Estado Peruano

Empresa Peruana de Servicios Editoriales S.A (Editora Perú) is a state-owned Enterprise governed by the FONAFE Corporation’s own private law, which enjoys economic, administrative and financial autonomy. Its mission is to share and publish legal and official State information and current affairs on both national and international levels in a plural, objective and reliable way. It has three lines of business: the official newspaper “El Peruano”, the Peruvian Andean News Agency and the line of Editorial and Graphic Services (Segraf).

Instituto Nacional de Radio y Televisión del Perú (IRTP) is a public body affiliated with the Ministry of Culture (formerly affiliated with the Presidency of the Council of Ministers), enjoys administrative, economic and financial autonomy. It is responsible for meeting the needs of information, knowledge, culture, education and entertainment in the population nationwide, through their communication platforms: TV Perú, TV Perú Noticias, Canal IPe, Radio Nacional and Radio La Crónica.

The independence of the state channel has been questioned on more than one occasion due to previous governments having used its signal for propaganda, particularly during the Fujimori era and Alan Garcia's second term in office. Interrupting the channel’s regular programming to broadcast the activities of the head of state live has been a frequent and questionable practice, especially when what is transmitted are public rallies organized a few weeks before election day, which can be taken as an act advocating in favor of the political party in power. During the outgoing government of Ollanta Humala, the presence of Nadine Heredia on TV Perú’s official broadcasts was questioned (the channel even covered a birthday celebration of the former first lady). It was speculated that the state channel was being used to support the presidential candidacy of Heredia, which ultimately never happened.
