Abstract: This paper reviews developments over the last decade in our understanding of the radio emission of Seyfert galaxies. After summarizing the characteristics and selection criteria of radio surveys. Properties of the integrated radio emission - radio luminosity functions, correlations of radio power with other properties, and spectra, are described. Radio structures are then discussed with emphasis on the different kinds of morphologies seen. Linear radio sources are morphologically and kinematically closely associated with the narrow line regions, and models attempting to account for this association are described. Diffuse radio sources are fuelled by circumnuclear star formation. The review concludes with some remarks on the implications of radio properties for unified models of type 1 and type 2 Seyferts.
