New Greek state radio station goes on air

Talk shows, music programs and hourly news bulletins make up the schedule of a new public radio station, Proto Programma, which began broadcasting on Thursday.

The radio station, which replaces those of defunct state TV and radio broadcaster ERT, is primarily staffed by former ERT employees and transmitting on the 95.6 FM frequency, among others.

Meanwhile, the Council of State is expected to deliver a decision on Friday on an appeal by the union representing ERT workers, POSPERT, regarding the government’s closure of the public broadcaster on June 11.
