TVR looks to Euronews

November 13, 2012 08.32 Europe/London By Chris Dziadul

The Romanian public broadcaster TVR has asked the countryís National Audiovisual Council (CNA) to approve a major change to its thematic channel TVR Info.

Mediafax reports that it would involve its renaming to TVR News and allocating nearly 80% of airtime to content provided by Euronews.

TVR suspended TR Info for a period of three months in mid-August due to the stationís parlous financial position and announced a new partnership in October with Euronews.

Should TVRís request be approved, TVR News could launch as soon as this Thursday (November 15).
