RTI already broadcasts to mainland Europe on 1350AM covering from Germany through the Baltics into and including Scandinavia plus 94.2 and 94.8FM in Slovakia reaching most of the V4 countries. The station is run by ex-BBC and commercial radio person Eric Wiltsher. Studios are based in Poprad Slovakia, with secondary studios in the UK and Riga.
Mr Jan Telensky, Chairman RTI, said, ?Eric and his team have worked tirelessly to get to this point in the development of RTI and even more so the development of RTI?s digital services. ?Now, for the first time in over a decade, advertisers wishing to reach a pan-European cosmopolitan audience can do so with RTI. It is truly a one-stop-shop, in the digital age, for those wishing to share a message throughout the entire continent of Europe?.
Eric Wiltsher, Director RTI, said: ?We are very proud of the improvements and developments the entire team of RTI have made possible in the last 12 months. ?We now have exciting programmes producing new listeners, who interact with us, on a daily basis and that is what radio of the future will be ? informative, fun and great music. ?We would also like to thank our friends at Sky for enabling the channel, on time, today as well as all the technical support people at Whirlwind and InformationTV. Finally, our thanks to Jan for his support and understanding of what the future of entertainment radio will be in the coming years?.
