If this looks familiar it’s because it’s part of the overall rebranding of SRG SSR, the Swiss organization responsible for public service broadcast in radio, television, and online in all four official languages of Switzerland. Earlier this month we covered RTS, the French language TV and radio channel. Now comes the German language radio and TV stations, established in 1931 and previously known as SR DRS (Schweizer Radio: Radio der deutschen und rätoromanischen Schweiz, “Swiss Radio: Radio of the German and Romansh Switzerland” in English) which has been renamed SRF (Schweizer Radio und Fernsehen, “Swiss Radio and Television” in English). The logos for the television channels remain the same but the six radio stations have all gotten new logos.
Established in 1931 SRG SSR is the Swiss public broadcasting responsible for overseeing the public service broadcast in radio, television, and online in all four official languages of Switzerland (German, French, Italian, and Romansh). Its French broadcaster, originally two separate entities — Radio Suisse Somande (RSR) and Télévision Suisse Romande (TSR) — have just merged into a single entity, Radio Télévision Suisse (RTS), and have introduced a new family of logos for its different channels across mediums, designed in-house.

In 2008 the two leading satellite radio companies — and as I understand it, the only ones granted a license to do so by U.S. Federal Communications Commission — merged to create SiriusXM, a powerhouse with 135 channels of commercial free music with more than 20 million subscribers. The original companies were strong on their own: Sirius launched in 2001, made a big splash in 2004 when it lured Howard Stern away from earth-bound radio; and XM, also launched in 2001, attracted Oprah and her team of personalities in 2006. Operating with a very mergerish logo since the merger, a new logo had been spotted as early as November of last year and just this month the new SiriusXM logo appeared on their website.
