The Swiss Broadcasting Corporation, the parent of WRS, saw a profit in 2011, for the first time in five years.
The SBC ended the year in the black nearly 26 million francs, with revenue of 1.6 billion francs.
The turnaround comes as the SBC continues a review and restructuring of its offerings.
Recently the head of the SBC, Roger de Weck, announced his intent to close or sell World Radio Switzerland, which has a budget of 3.1 million francs a year.
De Weck said the decision over WRS was not about money, but about whether an English-language service fit into the core mission of the SBC.
