MRT - Macedonian Radio Television
Blvd. Goce Delcev BB
Macedonian Television, as an integral segment of MRT, was founded on 14th of December, 1964. Till 1993 MRT operated within JRT (Yugoslav Radio & Television). Since then, MRT has been independent, transmitting programme on its network. In 1993 MRT became an active member of EBU. Being a public service, MRT produces news and current affairs programmes, debates, educational, cultural, documentary, sports, feature and entertainment programmes. The accent of the programme as a whole falls on two major components: affirmation of tradition, spiritual and cultural heritage and values of all ethnic communities, as well as the protection of their cultural and national identities and respect for European standards and global values. Macedonian Radio and Television is probably the most untypical broadcasting service in Europe, as it broadcasts programmes in nine different languages.
