Popularity of state television news program falls sharply

History

The viewership of the recently reprogrammed state-owned television channel M1’s main evening news program has dropped over 50% in nearly two months, online news portal nol.hu reported yesterday.

Nonetheless, the umbrella organization for public service media, MTVA, says it considers the reorganization of the state owned television channels a success.

Hungarian online daily hvg.hu earlier reported according to data from Nielsen Television Audience Measurement that Hungarian state-owned television channel M1 has been losing viewers since its renewal as an all-news channel on March 15.
