Friday January 05, 2007  11:46 AM

While endorsing President Hugo Chávez' decision not to renew the broadcasting license to 53-year television network Radio Caracas Televisión (RCTV), Francisco Rangel Gómez, the Governor of southern Bolívar state, said he is to propose the Executive Branch to impose comprehensive controls on radio stations and newspapers both in Bolívar state and throughout Venezuela.

"A comprehensive revision of these media -beyond TV channels- is necessary too because some radio stations and newspapers need to be reviewed too."

Some 10 newspapers and five TV channels, together with a number of radio stations, are currently operating in Bolívar state -the region with the highest number of media per capita in Venezuela.
