Media Council gives Jazzy Radio five-year extension

The Media Council has extended Jazzy Radio’s Budapest license for five years, allowing the station to continue operating on its 90.8 MHz frequency until October 2018. The 2010 Media Act allows authorities to grant one-time, five-year license renewals to broadcasters if the operator has paid its license fees and has not repeatedly breached the media laws. 

Jazzy Radio, which owned by Magyar Jazz Rádió Kft., launched its operations in October 2006 under a contract with Hungary’s former media regulator, ORTT. Magyar Jazz Rádió Kft. is owned by Imre Suri, Zoltán Antal, and Belmond & Adams Magyarország.
