Emitel S.A. and Radio WNET Sp. z o.o. have signed a 10-year contract for broadcasting and transmission of Radio WNET programme in Krakow and Warsaw.

Launching the transmitters means that Radio WNET will expand its digital broadcasting activities on the Internet with analogue broadcasting over the airwaves. Established in 2009, the radio station existed as an online radio broadcaster and a social network, with only some of their broadcasts being rebroadcast by other traditional radio stations. Now, Radio WNET will be able to broadcast its own programme on its own frequencies in the former and present capital of Poland.

“This is an important juncture for us, since from the very beginning we knew that sooner or later we would broadcast in FM technology. The nine years that we spent working on the Internet equipped us with the experience necessary to face the challenge of FM broadcasting. We hope to be able to increase the number of our transmitters in the future,” says Krzysztof Skowroński, co-founder and President of the Management Board of Radio WNET.

The ten-year agreement concluded between Emitel S.A. and Radio WNET Sp. z o.o. is the first joint venture of both companies.

“We are looking forward to the development of cooperation with our new Client and we are going to support them in all their efforts to increase the licensed broadcasting power in the future. We are happy that Radio WNET chose Emitel as an experienced and proven provider of radio and communication services,” says Andrzej Kozłowski, President of the Management Board of Emitel S.A

WNET Radio transmitters in Warsaw and Krakow will be launched on the 10th of November at 6:18 p.m. The radio station announced that the first broadcast will start on the 11th of November at 11:11 a.m.
