🇸🇰 #SLOVAKIA: Continued #ESC Absence Explained

RTVS, the Slovakian national broadcaster, have explained their continued absence from the Eurovision Song Contest, after last competing in 2012.

Rádio FM have regularly broadcast the Contest since participation last took place in Baku. RTVS have put the absence down to finance. Filip Púchovský of RTVS’s PR, had the following to say:

“Eurovision is a singing competition of public broadcasters. In the past, RTVS was the official broadcaster of the event and at the same time the organizer of the national competition round. RTVS carefully approaches the creation of the broadcasting structure of its television and radio circuits and in the past period decided not to include this international competition in its broadcasting based on the evaluation of several input factors, primarily the funds spent and viewership… The participation of Slovak artists is also associated with high financial costs, for which RTVS does not have the resources.”
