«The long and medium waves remain VGTRK public product» …

VGTRK decided to stop broadcasting the programs of the “Radio Mayak” on long and short waves from January, 1, 2013 that is why the radio broadcasting company will not be working outside the cities, as reported by the newspaper «Izvestia».

According to the interview to the “Izvestiya” newspaper with VGTRK deputy director general Sergey Arkhipov about the broadcasting prospects of “Radio Mayak” because of the ceasing of broadcasting on long and short waves: “We are planning to broadcast “Radio Mayak” in FM waves in the regions where there was no “Radio Mayak” broadcasting before. That is why weak medium-wave transmitters will be switched off where will be FM broadcasting. It’s too much to work on two frequencies. As for long waves, I personally support ceasing of broadcasting on long and short waves for 5 years already. When I started working in VGTRK 5 years ago, I said right away that it’s high time to stop this broadcasting because these transmitters are not produced any more. And if they are produced, they cost too much. There is no sense in paying enormous money to the state for long and short waves when we have FM and future transfer on digital format of broadcasting”.
