Broadcasters to Adjust Their Programmes to the National Days of Mourning


Skopje, 23 November 2021 – Following the tragic traffic accident that took place in the Republic of Bulgaria, the Government of RNM declared today, tomorrow and the day after tomorrow, i.e. the period from 23 to 25 November, as the National Days of Mourning.

The Agency for Audio and Audiovisual Media Services calls on the broadcasters to adjust their programmes accordingly and to air content that, by the nature of their media role, correspond to days of mourning.

Entertainment shows, comedy shows, or comedy-themed feature programmes scheduled to be aired during these three days should be rescheduled to other days of the week, while the music aired should belong to the music genres suitable for days of mourning. Should the already concluded contracts allow so, it is recommended not to broadcast any advertisements during these three days.
