N1, CNN’s regional partner in the Balkans, has launched.
As Advanced Television explains it:
N1 will have three regional centers – in Zagreb, Belgrade and Sarajevo, each of which has its own editorial policy, journalists, TV studio, internet and mobile platforms. All three studios will produce separate content that will be merged into a single regional program schedule. Additionally, N1 will broadcast CNN programs that it considers as relevant to viewers in the region, as well as providing CNN with regional news output that has global significance.
