Swiss yatra

SWI was founded in 1999 as the SBC’s online news and information service. It succeeds Swiss Radio International (SRI) which began its broadcasts as Swiss Shortwave Service in 1935 and gradually discontinued its services in the late 1990s. During the Second World War, it was often the only link to the homeland for about 200,000 Swiss expatriates. Through the war and much of the 20th century, the shortwave broadcasts underlined Swiss neutrality and the country’s democratic positions. Today, SWI reports exclusively online and provides content in ten languages from its headquarters in Bern.
