TV Puls sale edges closer

By Chris Dziadul | June 4, 2009

Platforma Mediowa Point Group (PMPG) has emerged as a possible investor in the Polish regional station TV Puls.

Wirtualne Media reports that the company is interested in acquiring not only a stake in the station, which up until late last year was backed by News Corp, but also up to 51% of the publishing company Presspublika, whose interest include the quality daily Rzeczpospolita.

Late last month, Dariusz Dabski, the president and leading shareholder in TV Puls, revealed that seven parties had so far expressed interest in the station, with two submitting bids.

PMPG is a Polish media group and lists Michal Lisiecki as its majority (61.6354%) shareholder.
It applied to the Polish National Broadcasting Council (KRRiT) this April for a licence to operate a channel named Machina TV.
