DIRECTOR OF “AR” DOES NOT CONFIRM RUMORS ABOUT THE CHANGE OF TV CHANNEL OWNER

Since October 16 “AR” TV company stopped its broadcasts. As YPC was told by the Director of “AR” Edgar Manukian, the pause is due to the need for technical re-equipment of the channel, and the broadcasting will be resumed in about a month. Edgar Manukian denied the persistent rumors that the suspension of “AR” activities is related to the forthcoming sale of the channel to the well-known businessman, the President of “Mika” company Mikhail Baghdasarov. As it has been reported, in late 2002 the TV company was acquired by another, equally well-known entrepreneur Hrant Vardanian, the President of “Grand Holding” company and the owner of another TV company, “Hayrenik TV”.
