Journalift Talks with Visar Hoti, director of RTV Tema

Ferizaj-based RTV Tema in the frame of the Media for All project enhanced video production capacities, launched two high-quality TV series, improved online sales via in-stream video ads, and introduced a new, subscriber-based, platform and in-store radio service. In order to fully benefit from the production improvements RTV Tema also developed new outreach and social media strategies.

RTV Tema is a private local television established in 2000 as a radio station, and from 2005 is licensed as a television station covering 10 municipalities in Kosovo with approximately 700,000 residents.
