From today the noontime news broadcast of Stöð 2 is no more. Óskar Hrafn Þorvaldsson, news director of Stöð 2, says that social reasons are for this decision. The news will be sent out on the radio channel Bylgjan.

“This decision has been taken. It will stand while it stands.” says Óskar Hrafn. Possibly situations would change later so it will be possible to broadcast again in television.

The length of the noontime news will not change despite this change says Óskar.

(Translators input : Stöð 2 is a tv channel formerly owned by 365 media. A couple of days 365 media was sold because of serious financial situation. The buyer is Jón Ásgeir Jóhannesson, former Baugur chairman.)
