Visegrad Group Radio launched in Hungary

The Visegrad Group consists of the Czech Republic, Poland, Hungary and Slovakia and the radio network will broadcast in their respective languages

The Hungarian version of the Visegrad Four joint radio network has been launched on public Kossuth Rádió.

The Visegrad Group consists of the Czech Republic, Poland, Hungary and Slovakia and the radio network will broadcast in their respective languages.

According to MTI, the channel aims to familiarize Hungarians with the country’s neighbors “who, in turn, can also get to know us better”.

Central Europeans share similar challenges today as in the past, both in politics and everyday life, so it is crucial that “we gain a better understanding and deeper experience of each other’s problems," MTVA Chief Executive Miklós Vaszily said.

The network, a Polish initiative financed by the Visegrad Fund, broadcasts programs on cultural, social and political topics.

The V4 radio network was launched on January 1 in Poland, and topics discussed included the 60th anniversary of the 1956 Hungarian Revolution and the Poznan Workers’ Protests.
