Slovak-based Radio Tatras International has launched a Weblog containing the text of its hourly weekday news in Slovak. The new service, part of a complete enhancement of news within RTI-SK, is the first new online service from the RTI-SK News Team. It can be accessed 24 hours a day via rtispravy.blogspot.com
Eric Wiltsher, Director RTI, said, “The entire world is moving into a new phase, as described by Bill Gates of Microsoft, being one of the Digital Decade. The challenge for broadcasters is to embrace the Digital Decade and offer services in tune with the listeners of this new decade, many of these services will be seen as public service broadcasting and commercial free.We are sure that many who work in other countries, not always able to listen to live news broadcasts, will find this service of great value and very much in-keeping with the RTI motto, RTI, A PLACE JUST LIKE HOME.
“Our news team have spent some time working on the format for this new Blog and I thank them for their hard work. I also commend them for taking the challenge of the Digital Decade with a truly 2007 approach”.
The new RTI News Blog, which also includes Tourist Information for both Slovak and English Tourists, will be updated at the same time as newscasts are made.
