MTG consolidates finnish radio operations

MTG CONSOLIDATES FINNISH RADIO OPERATIONS In an effort to consolidate its Nordic radio operations, MTG has acquired substantial ownership in Radio Nova, Finland's leading commercial radio network. MTG owns Sweden's largest commercial radio network, RIX FM, and is the largest owner of Norway's only nationwide commercial radio network, P4 Hele Norge. As a result of this decision to focus on Radio Nova, MTG Radio will no longer run the regional radio stations Star FM and Groove FM in Finland. The MTG Radio business area of Modern Times Group will be 50% owner in the company that controls 26% of the shares of Radio Nova, Finland's only nationwide commercial radio station. The other 50% will be owned by P4 Radio Hele Norge. MTG Radio has until now run its radio operations in Finland through P4 Finland Oy. MTG Radio has owned 24% of the shares in the company responsible for running the MTG stations Star FM and Groove FM. Both MTG Radio and P4 Radio Hele Norge are now selling their interests in these regional stations to American MetroMedia Inc. MTG Radio's other radio operations include RIX FM, Sweden's largest commercial radio network, Power Hit Radio in Stockholm and Gothenburg, MTG's share of P4 Radio Hele Norge, which is Norway's only nationwide commercial radio station, and the ownership in Star FM in Estonia and Latvia.
