Hungarian Court Ruling Gives Emmis Hope
January 6, 2010 at 2:18 PM (PT)
Hungarian court ruled that the regulatory decision that took the license away from the DANUBIUS radio station was unlawful. The ruling bodes well for Emmis' radio license for SLAGER, when its case comes before the court on JAN. 19th.
According to EARTH TIMES, EMMIS' pop music station SLAGER RADIO -- one of HUNGARY's most listened to -- went off air along with DANUBIUS after its own bid to renew its concession also failed. The original decision prompted the embassies of nine countries, including the U.S., FRANCE and the U.K. to issue a joint statement in NOVEMBER criticizing the lack of transparency in HUNGARIAN public and business life.
