Rooms-Katholiek Kerkgenootschap

Rooms-Katholiek Kerkgenootschap (abbr. RKK: English: Roman Catholic Church Association) was a special broadcaster on the Netherlands Public Broadcasting system, which was allowed to broadcast on radio and television because of their religious background. Article 2.42 of the Dutch media law (the Mediawet) makes room for faith-based radio and television broadcasters who do not have to have any members, unlike regular public broadcasters (several of which are also faith-based).
