There have been significant changeovers in media with the reconstruction period that started in 1980s and neo-liberal policies. In the communication environment that changed, public service broadcasters lost their monopoly and faced big problems both in Europe and in Turkey. From this viewpoint, the study aims to reveal what kind of effects neo-liberal policies had on public service broadcasting and how TRT was affected by this changed communication environment. In this respect, in the study, changes in the media and the effects of these changes on TRT are studied through "reconstruction", "neo- liberalism", and "public service broadcasting" concepts under a variety of categories.
