Yesterday night, Eurovision Song Contest 2004 coordinator Bülent Osma of TRT revealed some interesting facts about the contest in May. He told this in the radio show Geceye
Doðru on TRT FM. Our upcoming editor Ced Oner from Turkey passed the information through to esctoday.com exclusively.
Osma told that the qualifier round and the final will be hosted by different people. The qualifier round will be hosted by a Turkish male-female couple. As the European Broadcasting Union wished, from now on the final will be hosted by an international star. The names of the hosts will be revealed in December.
Bülent Osma mentioned that also from now on, the logo an the score-board will be identical for the next years and the host country is allowed to make little changes in them. Back to the time of the old starburst logo? Esctoday.com is awating a reaction of the EBU of this issue!
The EBU out-sourced the design and editorial work of eurovision.tv too. The company which will create this website, and the Junior Eurovision Song Contest website, will co-operate intensively with esctoday.com. More about this soon!
Osma added that the postcards will be produced by different directors, since one director is not enough to make all the postcards.
