Thursday 1 February 2018 | 11:09 CET | News
Members of the VPRT, Germany's federal association of commercial broadcasters, have voted to rename the association as "Vaunet - the association of private media". Vaunet will serve as Germany's leading umbrella association for audio-visual media in Germany representing over 150 members from the commercial broadcasting sector as well as online providers with TV, radio, mobile and other offerings. The association said it will concentrate more strongly on conveying the economic, social and cultural importance of commercial media following the renaming.
