[09.09] Bela Karolyi have sold Pax TV, his Romanian TV station

Bela Karolyi, the well-known former coach of Nadia Comaneci, have sold his Romanian TV station, Pax TV, to a Romanian private University related to Romanian Orthodox Church.

The orthodox religion is the most popular in the country, even during the communist regime the official (!) data admitting that more than 85% of population are orthodox.

The TV station, opened two years ago, just before the Christmas, was a religious-exclusive station. They have started with a 6-hours program, mostly landscapes documentaries and religious related stories (including some movies), but was considered by most Romanians as boring.

Even worst, the station was soon labeled by some press and people as a sect-oriented one-promoting other religious groups than orthodox, mostly U.S. inspired and funded.

These sects were seen and described by independent media as having marketing-aggressive campaigns in Romania, considered by most a wrong attitude among a conservative population with a long tradition of orthodox religion, even during times when going to church during Easter or attenting a marriage inside church could let you un-employed or...even worst.

No surprise that the Pax TV station of Bela Karolyi (which was seen more as the front-man, the real owners considered being a very powerful religious organization from West) have had financial problems last months and finally ended "in the hands of enemy"-those of the most powerful religious organization in Romania.

The monthly expenses to run the station according to the new owners plans, are around $60 000, which is an important amount for any church in one of the poorest East European country.
