Launched TRT's news in English
TRT World: How DMA launches news channels
DMA provided the launch team which got Turkish broadcaster TRT’s English language news channel on air.
Working with Reuters, DMA's experts created live news bulletins and got them started for the 'soft launch' within just a couple of weeks. They then refined and developed the product into a world class offering, covering regional and global news.
DMA's team included executive producers, output editors, intake editors, guest bookers, and reporter-producers, all of them experienced in the pressures of launching news channels to the tightest deadlines, working alongside local and newly-hired in-house staff.
Over a period of six months DMA trained and handed over the operations to TRT World, leaving behind a strong and reliable framework and reputation.
DMA launch experts work to the tightest of deadlines, high and low budgets, and are aware of cultural and political sensitivities, having worked in the Middle East, Africa, and many parts of Asia for more than a decade.
