NTU, the Ukrainian broadcaster, has won the bid to host the 7th edition of the Junior Eurovision Song Contest next year in Kyiv. NTU, who also hosted successfully the 2005 Eurovision Song Contest after Ruslana's victory in Istanbul, are proud and honoured to welcome children from all over Europe this time.
The Junior Eurovision Song Contest, the largest and most viewed children entetainment event in the world, will be travelling north to Ukraine for its 7th edition after this year's contest which will be held in Limassol, Cyprus. "All bids the Steering Group received were of high standard," says Svante Stockselius, Executive Supervisor of the event on behalf of the EBU.
"We are confident that NTU will host a superb show, and we hope that those broadcasters who were unsuccessful this time will consider bidding for the 2010 running," said Steve De Coninck-De Boeck, Chairman of the Steering Group.
Viktoria Romanova, Head of Delegation on behalf of NTU stated that Ukraine are very proud and honoured to welcome children from all over Europe to Kyiv next year, and are looking forward to host a great show.
