Turkey permits 14 channels to broadcast in different languages


Turkey's radio and television board allowed on Tuesday 14 TV and radio channels to broadcast in different languages and dialects.

Turkey's Supreme Board of Radio and Television (RTUK) gathered in Ankara, and discussed applications of several radio and TV channels that wanted to broadcast in different languages and dialects under a concerned regulation.

The board permitted Mardin's Cemre FM, Mersin's Radyo Ses, Sanliurfa's Radyo Net, Diyarbakir's Cagri FM, Gun Radyo, Nur FM, Gun TV, TV 21, Aktuel TV, Soz TV, Can TV, Can Radyo, Aktuel FM and Aksa FM to broadcast in different languages and dialects.

The above mentioned channels said they would broadcast in Kurdish, Zaza, Kirmanchi and Arabic.

Turkey allowed broadcasts in different languages and dialects in 2006. The state-run Turkish Radio and Television (TRT) began broadcasting in different languages and dialects on its TRT-6 channel as of January 1, 2009.
