Mass Media has become an important part of our life. We all have already become listeners, readers, viewers. We get information we need while we are reading newspapers and magazines, watching TV, listening to the news on the radio. If
you want to relax, you can just switch on any FM station and enjoy music or you switch on your TV set, choose one of the music channels and have a fun. Nowyou can hardly imagine that years ago there were no FM radio in the state, no satellite television and internet at all.
Newspapers, with their different kinds of news can supply any kind of information. They carry articles that cover the latest international and national events, all kind of news, advertising, fun stories, biographies of well-known people, etc. You can find newspapers also with the radio and TV programmes, where a full coverage of commercial, financial and public affairs is given. There are newspapers and magazines for young people. They give news, events and reports on education, sports, cultural life, entertainment, fashion, etc. There are many advertising programmes now.
Radio broadcasts are valued mainly for their music programmes (Europe Plus, Russian Radio, etc.).
