Georgia’s Imedi TV has made an official announcement that the company’s new strategy is to broadcast mainly news and political talk shows. The statement made by the TV company on October 5 was preceded by Eka Khoperia’s and Vakho Sanaia’s protesting claims against Georgian Public Broadcaster (GPB). Khoperia said her social-focused talk show was closed by Giorgi Chanturia, General Director of GPB with no clear explanation. “I asked for live broadcasting of Auditorium and freedom in choosing the guests. The profile of the show would remain focused on social issues. Chanturia answered he did not want street demonstrations before GBP,” Khoperia wrote on her facebook wall.  On his side, Sanaia objected Chanturia’s sudden decision to cancel his political talk show. “Chanturia broke his word given to the whole society. He promised that my political talk show would be aired on GPB, but changed his mind irresponsibly. I’m not going to quit, I will fight to keep my promised show,” said Sanaia during the Politmetri talk show aired on Measetro tv on October 5.
