EM.Sport relaunches as Constantin Medien

German media company EM.Sport Media is now trading as Constantin Medien.

The new name, which was decided upon at the company’s general meeting in January, has been officially registered and has thereby come into effect. The reason for the name change is the merger of EM.Sport Media with Swiss media group Highlight Communications and German film and television production company Constantin Film.

EM.Sport Media, in which Leo Kirch is the largest single shareholder, owns German sports channel DSF, sports production company Plazamedia, web portal Sport 1 and creative agency Creation Club.

With its new title, Constantin Medien wants to affirm its self-conception as a universal media company active in sports, film and marketing.
