Posted: 03 Nov 2008Reporters sans frontières "has sent a letter to President of Azerbaijan, Ilham Aliyev appealing to him to intervene after the National Broadcasting Council announced it planned to take three foreign radios stations off the FM band by 2009. They are the BBC, Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty and Voice of America. ... The organisation pointed out that the three media involved 'provide comprehensive, high quality and objective news'. and 'contribute fundamentally to the continued pluralism that is virtually non-existent elsewhere in the Azerbaijan media.' It stressed that 'their popularity - particularly that of RFE/RL - demonstrates this'." RSF, 3 November 2008.
