Romania’s National Audiovisual Council (CNA) has awarded Dogan Media International the audiovisual licence for Bucharest TV.
Bucharest TV is a general interest channel broadcasting in HD. It is included in the list of must-carry channels for cable operators in Romania and will be rebranded Kanal D2. In the same meeting, the CNA also awarded Dogan new audiovisual licences for Radio Impuls, whose network will now be expanded to further parts of Romania.
Commenting on the development, Ugur Yesil, CEO and executive board member Kanal D and Radio Impuls, said: “Kanal D2 and the new Radio Impuls licences represent a strategic step for Dogan Media International in our mission to add value to the media market in Romania. We have proven over time that we are innovative, we have created real trends in terms of TV formats and more, and we want to do many extraordinary things in the future.
“We will bring a new breath to the media market in Romania and, at the same time, we will offer the public quality products, through the three divisions of Dogan Media International – TV, Radio and Digital”.
Dogan Media International is already one of the leading media groups in Romania. Kanal D was launched 15 years ago and is now one of the country’s top three TV channels.
