Media of Turkey

|The media of Turkey is diverse; there are a wide variety of domestic and foreign periodicals expressing disparate views, and domestic newspapers are extremely competitive.[1] The media exert a strong influence on public opinion.[1] By circulation, the most popular daily newspapers are Zaman , Posta , Hürriyet , Sabah , Habertürk and Sözcü.[2] The broadcast media have very wide dispersion because satellite dishes and cable systems are widely available.[1] The High Board of Radio and Television is the government body overseeing the broadcast media.[1] Media ownership is concentrated among large private companies, which limits the views that are presented.[1] The largest such operator is the Doğan Media Group, which in 2003 received 40 percent of the advertising revenue from newspapers and broadcast media in Turkey.[1] In 2003 a total of 257 television stations and 1,100 radio stations were licensed to operate, and others operated without licenses.[1] Of those licensed, 16 television and 36 radio stations reached national audiences.[1] In 2003 some 22.9 million televisions and 11.3 million radios were in service.[1] Aside from Turkish, the state television network offers some programs in Arabic, Circassian, Kurdish, and Zaza.[1]
