Bulgaria Closes Local BBC World Service FM
September 3, 2008 at 5:29 AM (PT)
The BBC WORLD SERVICE has ceased operations in BULGARIA, where the English-language programming had aired on 91.0 FM in SOFIA, reports the SOFIA ECHO.
The Bulgarian CEM agency revoked the station's authority amidst talks that private interests were looking to acquire the frequency; the CEM is enforcing a law barring foreign-language broadcasts. WORLD SERVICE programming is available online and through the HOTBIRD 2 satellite service.
