The TTPBA (Trinidad & Tobago Publishers & Broadcasters Association) was established in the early 1990's with the granting of Presidential licences to potential radio broadcasters to own and operate radio stations. As the Trinidad radio market grew and more radio stations came on the scene, owners and operators saw the need to come together with a view to sharing concerns, resolving issues and developing the media industry in a way that would be beneficial to all parties.

Objectives were formulated then, and with the incorporation of the TTPBA in October 2003 these were formalized in our written constitution. The TTPBA is a non-profit organization that is funded by its members.
