Hungarian radio station to carry banned YU broadcasts

BUDAPEST, May 31, 2000 -- (AFP) A private radio station in Hungary is to broadcast programs from a Serb independent radio station which was closed down by Belgrade, Hungarian reporter Zoltan Rozgonyi said Tuesday.

Hungary's Tilos Radio would broadcast news in Serbian from station B2-92 five times a day on FM starting at 2000 GMT on Wednesday.

"We will broadcast programs until B2-92 is again able to transmit," Rozgonyi told the Hungarian daily Nepszava.

Hungarian Foreign Minister Janos Martonyi hailed Tilos Radio's "exemplary support" for B2-92, which has broadcast only by Internet or satellite since the Yugoslav government seized opposition television station Studio B that housed the radio facilities.
