NRJ (NRJ is an acronym read as Nouvelle Radio Jeune, or énergie in French, literally "energy") is a private French radio station created by Jean-Paul Baudecroux and Max Guazzini in June 1981, and was widely popularized thanks to its godmother singer Dalida, who prevented it from closing in 1984. Today radio belongs to the NRJ Group and is the founding station of NRJ International.
The main station only focuses on current chart hits throughout the day and electronic dance music during some weekend late night hours. Talk programs are based every evening except Saturday. In contrast, its web radios devoted to a vast range of music: rap, RnB, dance, hip-hop, electronic, top 40, urban and rock.
