The Piraean Radio and Television, AE (Piraean: Πειραιηκή Ραδιοφωνία Τηλεόραση AE) is the state-owned public service of television and radio in Piraea. It is headquartered in Alikianos and it is the oldest radio and television broadcaster with continious operations in Piraea.

It was created in 1940 in an effort to widespread information through radio in the rural First Piraean Republic. It gained popularity during its early years and became an effective republican communication tool during the civil war. It remained in place during the military junta period, owning the monopoly of official information, until in 1957, the television department was created and PRT became the first and only broadcaster in Piraea at the time. Heavily censored, it focused in news briefings and bulletins, developing towards series and regime propaganda towards the 1960s. Since the return of democracy in 1979, PRT has undergone several reforms, censorship was removed, management was democratised and its funding regularised and expanded.

PRT is a full member of the Euclean Broadcasters Group and its headquarters are located in Alikianos.
