“SHANT” TV AND RADIO COMPANY: SECOND BIRTH AFTER 7 YEARS

This was the title of the presentation of “Shant” TV and radio company (Gyumri, Shirak region of Armenia) that took place on March 23 in Yerevan. The presentation was devoted to the start of “Shant” broadcasting in the capital. This is the first similar undertaking among Armenian regional TV companies, not only because of the expansion of broadcast area, but also considering special programming: newscasts, analytical and other programs for viewers in Yerevan.

At the presentation a documentary on the history and future prospects of “Shant” was shown. (“Shant” TV and radio company was founded in 1994 and is presently one of the most successful regional stations.)
