MTG acquires Estonian radio stations

MTG ACQUIRES ESTONIAN RADIO STATIONS MTG has today acquired three estonian radio stations that cover the towns of Tallinn, Tartu and Pärnu. These radio stations reach some 50 per cent of the Estonian population and 70 per cent of the market for advertising. MTG will be a partner in the stations and the program offering will be revamped to a format characterized as "soft adult contemporary" ("Soft AC"). In other words this is quiet music for adults, playing such artists as Mariah Carey, Rod Stewart, Whitney Houston and Elton John. The name of the radio channels in Estonia will be Easy FM. "Soft adult contemporary is one of the most successful formats in the world. But up to now it has been lacking in Estonia, which should mean that the listener potential is large," says Anders Nilsson, President of MTG Radio.
