RADIO B2-92 COVERING SERBIA

BELGRADE, May 19, 2000 -- Radio B2-92 has stepped up the distribution of its
program by satellite.  More than thirty radio and seventeen television
stations in the ANEM network are now able to obtain and disseminate large
quantities of information from Belgrade including reports from the daily
protest rallies.  Many stations are able to carry the protest coverage live
from the satellite.  ANEM is hoping to be able to provide full 24-hour
satellite coverage very soon.  The Radio B2-92 program is being broadcast
around the clock on the Internet to provide programming feeds to stations
outside the satellite slots.

ANEM Television programs are also being more widely distributed.  Special
reports of between ten and twenty minutes are being distributed via
Television Montenegro's satellite (Eutelsat Hot Bird, 13 degrees E, 12 380
vertical polarisation, 27500 3/4) between 21.00 and 22.00 CET.  These
reports include news from Belgrade and inland Serbia and are distributed to
local stations in Serbia.  They include reports from ANEM and other
independent television stations and production houses.

In addition to this emergency program, Television Montenegro's satellite is
carrying the daily program "Stop the Violence". This is produced by
ANEM/B292 on Tuesdays, Fridays and Saturdays, VIN on Wednesdays and TV Mreza
on Thursdays.

These programs are also distributed on VHS cassettes to towns without
independent television stations for screening on video projectors or
television sets in clubs, cafes and restaurants.

Two journalists from Radio B2-92 were injured while covering the protests on
May 18.  They are not in a serious condition.

Legal representatives and journalists from Radio B2-92 made another attempt
today to enter their premises in the Beogradjanka but were refused
permission even to collect personal belongings.  Police are still occupying
the station's newsroom.
