The stochastic wave-kinetic theory at the level of the first-order smoothing approximation is used to construct a radiative transfer equation for a simple model of a weakly inhomogeneous, weakly non-stationary, and locally isotropic cold turbulent plasma. All the coefficients in the resulting equation are expressed systematically in terms of the electrodynamic and statistical properties of the medium without the usual recourse to phenomenological arguments.
