The study of radio emission from SN 1987A after the neutrino burst is reviewed. The observed maximum flux density of the burst at radio wavelengths was about 140 mJy and occurred at 1.4 GHz. The radio light curves for SN 1987A at four frequencies are compared with data for SN 1979C and SN 1980K. VLBI observations of SN 1987A at 2.3 GHz and other radio monitoring programs are examined.
