CTC Media profits fall

Russian broadcaster CTC Media has reported total operating revenues down 23% year on year to US$105m (€79m), while net profit fell 44.1% in the first quarter to US$23.3m.

CTC Media, which is 40%-owned by Modern Times Group, said the results “reflected the deterioration of the advertising markets” despite each of its networks increasing its advertising market shares year-on-year in the first quarter. It’s flagship channel, CTC, maintained its target audience share and its position as the fourth most-watched free-to-air channel in Russia.
