MTG ACQUIRES RADIO STATIONS IN LATVIA Modern Times Group MTG AB has acquired a holding in a national radio network in Latvia. MTG today became the owner of 40 per cent of nationwide-coverage Latvian Radio Rigai. The eight stations in Radio Rigai broadcast the same programmes. The network is one of two privately owned networks in Latvia that cover the entire country. MTG has management responsibility for the radio stations, which target the 25-49 age group.
