The Senate Radio-Television Gallery (SRTVG) was established in 1939 by Senate rule in order to provide a workspace for journalists who cover the Senate and report the news through electronic means. The Gallery issues credentials to journalists representing broadcast media, including major news networks, their affiliates, and foreign news outlets. By rule, this credentialing process is overseen by the Executive Committee of the Radio-Television Correspondents Association (RTCA). For more information about RTCA, please visit

Gallery members must follow the directions of the Gallery staff at all times and are expected to conduct themselves in a professional manner when working in the Senate Gallery workspaces and studios.
