TRT plans to launch TV channel in English next year

The Turkish Radio and Television Corporation will work on launching a channel in 2011 that will broadcast in English, TRT General Manager Ibrahim Sahin has said.

Speaking to the Anatolia news agency today, Mr Sahin talked about TRTs plans for next year. Having announced that they will have a new education channel by January, he noted that they would focus on launching a separate channel in English, which, he added, is akin to a national duty for them.

This is because Turkey has grown so large and become an effective power in its region. We, however, cannot publicize that because promoting it to non-Turkish speakers can only be in English. It is a universal language now. Everyone understands at least a little of it. We can now say all countries have established a channel [in English] and started promoting it like that. I think we lag a little behind in that regard, Mr Sahin said.

TRT has been engaged in an intensive campaign to start broadcasting in non-Turkish languages. As part of that campaign, two separate stations broadcasting in Kurdish and Arabic were launched in the past two years.
