TURKEY – More sad news come from Turkey. As we read at ESCape News fan site for the Eurovision Song Contest and as we tried to understand from the contact we had with their team, it seems that Turkish national broadcaster has shut down the Eurovision office at TRT, which serves in each broadcaster as a liaison between the national broadcaster and the European Broadcasting Union. It is unknown what the next steps will be and we have no reaction by the EBU yet. TRT is the only active member of the EBU and therefore eligible to participate or broadcast the Eurovision Song Contest. Besides the Eurovision Song Contest all news and sports services will be inactive and the fans in Turkey hope it’s just temporary.
