In the beginning there was the…Central Information Desk.
The International Politics team in charge of news coverage.
A large part of Radio Bulgaria’s foreign language programmes are first written in Bulgarian by the different teams of the Central Information Desk. They produce a great variety of stories – news from Bulgaria, commentaries on political events at home and abroad, interviews and coverage of social, economic, cultural and sporting life. Though they are not in the limelight, and their names may not always be mentioned on the air, the journalists at the Central Information Desk are by no means anonymous. Each one of them has a writing style, which an attentive listener can recognize, even in translation.

The Music Section of Radio Bulgaria works with all foreign language services. We offer news of musical events at home and performances of Bulgarian artists abroad, and introduce contemporary Bulgarian music to our listeners.
The Music Section brings you Bulgarian folklore in all of its originality and unique variety of melody and rhythm. It is our mission to bring you timely news of the achievements of Bulgarian folklore ensembles, choirs, opera singers, conductors and chamber formations.
We try to satisfy the whole range of different musical tastes and preferences of our listening audience, and are often genuinely surprised by the knowledge of Bulgarian music listeners from all parts of the world display. Our dialogue with the audience inspires us in our quest for new topics and forms, which will make our contacts on the air both informative and enjoyable.
“Be with us, wherever you are – from America to Australia and from Sweden to South Africa” – this is the motto of the Bulgarian Language Section of the Central Information Desk. The ambition of the editors’ team is through the air of Radio Bulgaria to allow Bulgarians living all over the world keep in touch with life in this country, to get informed on the processes and tendencies in all spheres, to learn more about the history of their country, to sense the unique folklore, to hear the best of the older and latest Bulgarian music. We offer all this in our current event and thematic features. There you can also hear the life stories of Bulgarians living abroad and receive answers to questions you are interested in.
