The newly formed Greek National Broadcaster NERIT, is working hard to get their application in place to apply for EBU membership. Today Eurovision Executive Supervisor Jon Ola Sand has confirmed that Greece has been given an extended deadline to apply for Eurovision participation.
Talking to Eurovision.tv Jon Ola Sand said
“We are in close contact and we would really like to have the Greeks take part. I hope that we will find a solution, but this is not in place as yet. We have given them an extended deadline beyond the 22nd of November, which is the sign-up deadline”
Speaking to Danish National Broadcaster DR – Mr Sand said “Ensuring that as many countries as possible take part in Copenhagen is of a high priority for us”
November 22nd is the formal deadline for applications to be received from National Broadcasters wishing to take part at the Eurovision Song Contest 2014.
