Bugun TV, Kanalturk go off air after seizure decision

The broadcasting of İpek Media Group television stations Bugun TV and Kanalturk was cut on Wednesday afternoon after police teams escorting a board of trustees appointed to take over management of the group were seen entering the television stations’ satellite uplink room.

Bugun TV Editor-in-Chief Tarik Toros was escorted by police officers out of the broadcasting room.

The two channels are currently only broadcasting online, although the personnel of the television channels are not allowed into the broadcasting room.
