Broadcasters Need to Adjust Their Programmes to the Declared National Days of Mourning – Today, Tomorrow and the Day After Tomorrow


Skopje, 9 September 2021 – Due to the tragedy that happened last night in the modular hospital for Covid-19 patients in Tetovo, the Government of the RNM declared September  9, 10 and 11, 2021 as the national days of mourning.

The Agency for Audio and Audiovisual Media Services is calling on the broadcasters to adjust their programmes to the declared days of mourning in the way that they reschedule the entertainment shows, comedy shows or feature programme of the comic genre scheduled for these three days for some other days of the week. .

The music that the broadcasters will be airing should belong to music genres suitable for days of mourning. If the already concluded contracts allow so, it is recommended that no advertisements be aired during these three days.
